Background

The Home Sectary said taking the knee was too political to be allowed in football and hinted that she thought it's meaning was wrong any how a few days earlier.

The Denmark Vs Wales, Denmark Vs. Czechia, Denmark Vs. England, Italy Vs. Belgium, Italy Vs. Spain and Italy Vs. England matches were very dirty and controversial; with cheating and\or hooliganism by Denmark, Denmark, England, Italy, Italy and Italy respectively.

A pathetic turd among the England fans had also flashed a laser pen in the face of Danish goalie, Kasper Schmeichel, risking his eye sight.

The PM had condoned booing it and the Danish anthem in the England-Denmark match, but the English manager condemned booing out the anthem of opposing teams the next day.

Italy wins

The Italian embassy made several undiplomatic and unsporting anti-English football comments before kick-off.

Italy beats England in Euro2020-21!

Luke Shaw, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Mason Mount and Kalvin Phillips, Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane refused to take their silver medals, to fans disgust.

English football hooligans riot outside the Wembley stadium and in Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus (London) by England fans in which a McDonalds was looted, a Burger King was looted, may windows smashed and a Portuguese flag burnt. 19 cops were wounded and 45 yobs were arrested.

Italian fans were attacked on the streets of central London by English hooligans.

The Anglo-Belgian F1 driving ace Lando Norris was mugged at the Wembley riot and his £40k watch was stolen.

The aftermath

The PM and Prince William condemned online racist attacks on UK players, but he said nothing about the laser pen incident on the trashing of Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus. The UK's print media, England's team manager, FA and UIFA condemned the racist and hooligan behavior by English fans. 86 people were arrested by police that day.

The major UK estate agents, Savills, investigates racist twitter posts allegedly posted by an employee after the match.

Marcus Rashford's mural in Manchester was vandalised. England footballer, Tyrone Mings, accused the home secretary of "gesture politics" and inflaming racism by condemning players taking the knee.

There were 875 criminal incidents, by far the worst this tournament, with just under 250 arrests by the next morning.

  • Chief Constable Mark Roberts, the National Police Chiefs’ Council Football Policing Lead said:
“Although the result wasn’t what we hoped for last night, it’s absolutely no excuse for the appalling behaviour we have seen across the country,”.

England's rugby Lions star, Maro Itoje, condemned both the racist and rioting English football thugs.

Bizarre stuff

A petition starts up

England fans use the foul by Italian captain, Giorgio Chiellini, in which he heavy pulling on England's player, Bukayo Saka's collar and the subsequent fall to call for a rematch since they could not accept losing to Italy any how, irrespective of Italy's behavior.

UK politicians

They soon followed the PM, Leader of the Opposition and Prince William by chorusing support for Black UK players who were the victims of racism, but refused to accept that the riots, looting, muggings and alleged English attacks on some Italians even took place.
