Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not watching ... but following 120 minutes of football ... nothing spectacular ... ends 1-1 and a penalty shootouts. Could as well have agreed two hours ago. Waiting for an defensive error ... not much of an attacking game. Once Italy scored the equalizer .. the side performed what it does best ... kill the game. A throw of the dice. 😎💪🏼

A call from Downing Street Nr 10 ... demanding a VAR review ... threatening sanctions on Brussels ... ehhh Zurich perhaps? 😂 🇮🇹
The cup is traveling to Rome ... an * (expletive) EU country.

PM Boris Johnson just like his "hero" Trump refuses to own up to it ... abuse will only spread! A dark day of what should have been a wonderful sports match.

Well you can watch the US baseball All Stars game this week instead! Even if only because it is being held in Denver after Major League Baseball moved it from Atlanta in response to new additional unconstitutional voting restrictions. Tough situation when 1/3 of your players are minorities.

England Taking the Knee Criticism after Tie 0-0 Scotland

Tory MP to boycott England games in row over taking the knee | The Guardian |

Anderson said the FA and England team had made "a big mistake" and "now run the risk of becoming like the Labour party and that is having nothing in common with their traditional supporters".

"All forms of racism are vile and should be stamped out - but this is not the way," he added.

Here's how Tory MP Lee Anderson's Euro 2020 boycott over England taking the knee is going

Hooliganism and Racism Returns ...

From a tweet ...

Racist abuse of Saka, Sancho, Rashford; storming Wembley; violence inside; terrified, crying children; fireworks thrown into crowds (we've got video); glass bottles hurled; Wembley Way trashed.

Disgusting and depressing.

Hooligans belonged to clubs, not our experience for EU championship games where hospitality and fun for family is most important. Sportsmanship 🌎

How the games should be played ...
