In only one day Italians taught Englismen how to win a championship and how to come second with great dignity.
Hope they learned the lesson.
Fair play does not live in London. Not last Sunday, not at Wembley. Chilling behavior of the English fans who stepped on an Italian flag before the match, then whistled the anthem of Mameli and at the end of the match, which they abandoned before the awards ceremony, they also sought a fight with the Italian fans. All while mr Southgate's players vented their anger by taking off the silver medal in second place, with a gesture that is anything but sporty.
Read in the web:
“Once there was a golden rule called FAIR PLAY. Are young English people no longer taught? ”
“Nothing medals, we are English “
” Whistles to the anthem, empty stadium for the award ceremony, English players who take off the silver medal with anger and finally this: years of proverbial (phantom?) English sportsmanship dissolved in a couple of hours? “
“The English players refuse the medal: the real losers of this European”
“Someone wanted to go to London and wave in the face of the English that flag that they stepped on shortly before the game”
” If there are pictures of English fans crying send them that they are my serotonin after everything they have done to us “
They whistled against our anthem, 58,000 people left the stadium before the award ceremony, the players took off the medal with a gesture of contempt … English unsportsmanlike “
