Malmo winger Tobias Sana, 26, was warming up at the Gamla Ullevi stadium when the firework bounced under his feet. Former Gothenburg player Sana reacted by throwing a corner flag at home fans.

Players from both teams were taken off the pitch by the referee with the score 0-0 with 12 minutes remaining on Wednesday in the Allsvenskan fixture.
