Albania captain Lorik Cana: 'Our lives were in danger' during Serbia qualifier

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains what's next for Serbia and Albania after Tuesday's pitch altercation.

Lorik Cana has told L'Equipe he heard cries of "Kill, kill the Albanians" during his nation's abandoned Euro 2016 qualifier with Serbia.

Cana, 31, and his teammates were forced to defend themselves before fleeing to the safety of the dressing room in Belgrade on Tuesday after Serbian fans invaded the pitch and attacked visiting players.
