A Danish football supporter whose attack on the referee at Sweden's Euro 2008 qualifying match against Denmark lives in Sweden, it emerged after the match.

The man was arrested directly after the attack.

"He lives in Sweden but is a Danish citizen," Copenhagen Police spokesman Jens Carlsen told Aftonbladet.

The man is expected to be questioned on Sunday. He was arrested after running onto the pitch after the game and attacking referee Herbert Fandel.

Shortly before the incident, Fandel had given Danish player Christian Poulsen a red card and awarded a penalty to Sweden.
