Marko Arnautovic ban for match vs Netherlands for insulting another player after scoring against North Macedonia

Marko Arnautovic has been given a one-match ban for insulting another player during Austria's 3-1 victory over North Macedonia at Euro 2020. 

Arnautovic allegedly made a racial slur following his late strike, saying 'I'm f***ing your Albanian mother' in the direction of Ezgjan Alioski, according to Koha. 

UEFA's ruling makes no reference to racism, saying the tournament organisers said in a statement that its appeals'' body had decided to "suspend Austrian Football Association player, Marko Arnautovic, for the next (1) UEFA representative team competition match for which he would be otherwise eligible, for insulting another player". 

The forward will now miss Austria's Group C match against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Thursday. Last week, Arnautovic apologised for his outburst, but insisted he was not a racist.
