World Cup 2018: Danish FA reports death threats against striker Nicolai Jorgensen to police
Updated: 3 July 2018
The Danish Football Association said on Tuesday it has reported death threats made against striker Nicolai Jorgensen to the police, after he endured a barrage of online abuse for missing a World Cup penalty against Croatia.
Jorgensen’s miss in Sunday’s penalty shoot-out led to Denmark’s elimination from the tournament following a 1-1 stalemate at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.
“Stop. Our society must never accept death threats – neither against World Cup stars, politicians or others. It is completely unacceptable and indecent,” the Danish FA said in a statement on Twitter. “We are reporting the case to the police to end this madness.”
Three Danes – Christian Eriksen, Lasse Schone and Jorgensen – missed from the spot as Croatia won the shoot-out 3-2 but Jorgensen was the last to do so, drawing threats and abusive language on his Instagram and Facebook profiles.
Jorgensen, who represents Feyenoord at club level, has been linked with a move to Newcastle United this summer. Feyenoord and Newcastle were unable to reach an agreement on Jorgensen’s transfer fee during the January window.
