Football, Netherlands: Dutch politicians and the KNVB football association reacted with horror to racist songs in the second division match of FC Den Bosch against Excelsior Rotterdam (3: 3). For the first time in Dutch professional football, a referee interrupted a match for racism. Ten minutes before half-time, the referee decided to suspend the match after the Excelsior player, Ahmad Mendes Moreira, had touched the ball, insulted by monkey sounds and songs on the "Zwarte Piet "in the stands.
Moreira was obviously suffering from these hostilities and the referee therefore interrupted the match at the request of the captain of Excelsior. After consultations, Excelsior agreed to end the match. Shortly before half-time, Moreira returned the favor with a goal of making it 2-1 at halftime. The game ended at 3: 3.
