Austria forward Marko Arnautovic has been handed a one-match ban for insulting a rival player after scoring a goal against North Macedonia in the Euro 2020 Group C fixture at the weekend.

Arnautovic, who has Serbian ancestry, apologized on social media for his exchange with Ezgjan Alioski during Sunday’s game but denied using a racist slur against the Leeds United player, who is Macedonian of Albanian heritage. EFE
