Ola Toivonen News
World Cup racist abuse brought Sweden squad even closer, says Ola Toivonen.
Updated on 6th July 2018
Durmaz was targeted on social media after he had given away the 95th-minute free-kick leading to Toni Kroos’ last-gasp winner in Sweden’s 2-1 defeat to Germany.
The following day, the midfielder, who was born in Sweden to Assyrian parents, delivered a powerful message against racism, reading a statement while the entire Sweden camp lined up behind him.
Sweden’s remarkable togetherness was already one of their defining qualities, but Toivonen says the incident has only made them stronger.
“After the [Germany] game, there were a lot of special circumstances with the racist abuse of Jimmy,” Toivonen said. “We were a really strong group before, but after that we became even closer. We read [the abuse] everywhere. It was really tragic. You know racism is going to be there, but when it comes to abusing his kids, his wife, his family, it was over the limit.
“Jimmy wanted to say something to the whole world and we’re behind him. It was Jimmy and the coach [Janne Andersson] who decided what to say.
“We know racism is everywhere. It’s in France, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden. It needs to stop. It’s tragic.”
In his statement, Durmaz said: “When someone threatens me, when they call me darkie, bloody Arab, terrorist, Taliban, then the limit has been passed.
“And what is even worse, when they go after my family and my children and threaten them, who the hell does that kind of thing?”
The midfielder, who plays for Toulouse, added: “I am Swedish and I am proud to represent the Swedish national team. It is the biggest thing you can do as a footballer. I will never let any racists destroy my pride. We all have to make a stand against racism.”
On the challenge of facing England, Toivonen said: “I don’t think anyone will want to play us. We’re an aggressive team, we trust our defence and create chances. We’ll let them have possession, it doesn’t bother us. To be honest, I haven’t looked at England. I’ve just seen their goals. They have Harry Kane, an amazing No9.”
