A friendly in name only

A shame that the only thing to report from yesterday's dull 0-0 with Den Haag was the fact that some of our players were reportedly subjected to racial abuse by a minority of home supporters. The club issued a terse statement saying that the matter would be discussed and resolved privately with our hosts. It must have left a sour taste in the mouth of Tim Krul in particular, who had been vocal in his delight at going back to play at his first club in the run-up to the game.

Can someone explain to this American how fans can hurl racial abuse at NUFC when half of their squad seemed to be of African descent and half of the game officials were the same? Was it racial or ethnic? I'm confused.
