A masked intruder stormed onto the pitch during a Swedish topflight game and attacked one of the goalkeepers.

Ostersund’ shotstopper Aly Keita was attacked from behind.

Players and security tackled what turned out to be a 17-year old male, who was then escorted away and arrested.

Keita meanwhile suffered minor injuries before being led off the pitch.

Ostersund were drawing 1-1 at Jonkoping Sodra at the time of the incident.

The match was abandoned.

The Swedish Football Association said it would decide whether to record the game as a draw or whether to awarded a 3-0 victory to Ostersund, if Jonkoping Sodra were found to have been at fault with their security measures.
