The Uefa Appeals Body said it had suspended Arnautovic for one game for 'insulting' another player

Austria will be without forward Marko Arnautovic for Thursday's Euro 2020 Group C match against the Netherlands after he was handed a one-match ban by Uefa.

An investigation was opened by Uefa after Arnautovic's angry goal celebration in Austria's opening win over North Macedonia after coming on as a substitute Sunday.

Arnautovic, who has Serbian background, apologized Monday for his reaction towards North Macedonia fans but denied he had used racist language towards them.

North Macedonia's football governing body (FFM) said Arnautovic's remarks were aimed at their player Gjanni Alioski, who has Albanian roots.

The Uefa Appeals Body said Wednesday it had suspended Arnautovic for one game for "insulting" another player.

Serbia does not recognize the independence of its former province Kosovo, while there is historic tension between Serbia and North Macedonia.
