Does this happen in every soccer match?

Drones are scary. They spy on us from above. They kill an alarming number of civilians. But on the other hand, they also cause riots at Eastern European soccer matches by waving inflammatory flags while piloted by the Albanian Prime Minister’s brother, and I’m definitely in favor of that.

The Albanian-Serbian match ended in chaos after the drone in question appeared over the field bearing a flag reading “Greater Albania,” an apparent reference to the Greater Albanian movement, which claims Albanian sovereignty over areas inhabited by ethnic Albanians, including Kosovo.

A Serbian player quickly yanked the flag to the ground, which sparked a riot involving players and spectators. The drone pilot was quickly ejected from Serbia, and no doubt subjected to a sigh and a “KEVIN, oh my GOD,” from his big brother.
