Euro 2024: UEFA bans Albanian striker Daku for two matches

Mirlind Daku will also be missing from the Albanian national team in a possible European Championship round of 16. UEFA has banned the player. The reason for this is his misconduct after the match against Croatia.

The European Football Union UEFA has banned Albanian striker Mirlind Daku for two European Championship matches. The 26-year-old’s misconduct after the Albanians’ match against Croatia on June 19 in Hamburg (2:2) “brought football into disrepute”. Daku used the sport to convey messages of a non-sporting nature. After the match, Daku was seen standing in front of the Albanian fans with a megaphone and was subsequently accused of nationalist chants.

Daku spreads “provocative messages” – Albania’s association has to pay a fine

The Albanian association must also pay a fine of 25,000 euros “for spreading provocative messages that are not appropriate for a sporting event,” UEFA announced. In addition, there will be a fine of 22,500 euros for other offenses. UEFA did not provide any details when the proceedings were initiated.

In any case, Daku will be missing from his team’s final group match on Monday in Düsseldorf against Spain and in a possible round of 16 match. If Albania is eliminated, the ban will apply to the next UEFA competition match.
