Swedish soccer player Jimmy Durmaz foul in the last seconds of the game earned Sweden the ill-fated free kick which cost the Scandinavian side dearly – with no time to respond – in the world cup group F match on Saturday.
Now Durmaz is getting racist hate speech including death threats from trolls on his social media.
A Twitter account World Cup Updates also alluded to this in a tweet on Saturday following Sweden’s casualty at the hands of reigning champions Germany.
Jimmy Durmaz told the Swedish media he ‘did not care’ as he has ‘experienced hate all his life.’
If you have had it all your life then there is no harm. There is nothing to care about, I stand proud and represent my country.
