Rose described how the chanting started in the warm-up and gradually got worse as the match went on.
“After 60 minutes my mind wasn’t really on the game. I was just so angry and it was so hard to concentrate,” he said.
“Then we scored and after 90 minutes’ worth of abuse, I expressed my emotions as soon as we scored.
“Next thing I know, all the Serbia players were surrounding me, pushing me. I remember getting slapped twice. I got ushered away and that’s when I kicked the ball – and then the referee sent me off.
