Serbian fans raised on Thursday a banner mocking the military interventions carried out by the United States since the 50s.
Serbia’s Crvena Zvezda was playing against the Scottish Glasgow Rangers at the Rajko Mitic stadium in Belgrade for a qualifying Europa League match.
The banner was a timeline of all the conflicts to which the US, as well as NATO, had sent its army, including the attack on Serbia in 1999 and Afghanistan after 9/11.
The banner ended with a sarcastic message All We Are Saying Is Give Peace A Chance”.
"All we're saying is give peace a chance."
Fans of the Serbian team "Crvena Zvezda" at the 1/4 Europa League match stretched a banner with a phrase from a John Lennon song.

This is the second time since the start of the Ukraine War that Serbian hooligans convey politically motivated messages on the football field.
Serbia, a known Russian ally in the region, is the only European country that refused to sanction Moscow.
