Stockholm, Aug 16 (IANS) The first division football game between clubs Jonkopings Sodra and Ostersunds in Sweden was abandoned after the visiting goalkeeper was attacked by an invader, local media has reported.

A masked black-clad fan burst onto the pitch in the injury time when the two sides tied 1-1 on Monday, chasing and beating keeper Aly Keita before being arrested by players and security officials.

The keeper was clutching his head as he returned to the changing rooms where he was treated by the medics.

“The Ostersunds goalkeeper was hurt and treated by doctors. He’s not fit to play again,” said match delegate Nicklas Bengtsson on Monday.

Ostersunds coach Graham Potter added that “Keita is shocked” and “he’s not doing so well”.

Talking about the attacker, Jonkopings manager Jimmy Thelin said the club had “no idea who he is and where he comes from”.

A match between Gothenburg and Malmo on April 27 was also halted when a firework exploded at the feet of a substitute who was warming up. Malmo were awarded a 3-0 victory.
