UEFA Euro 2020: England-Italy supporters clash following final, videos go viral on social media
The 2020 UEFA Euro final ended on a top note for Italy, as the side trumped England to win its second European crown. However, things did not turn out well between the fans, as they clashed following the final, while social media videos suggest the same.
The highly anticipated final between England and Italy in the UEFA Euro 2020 ended in favour of the latter. It edged out the former on penalties at the Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday.
The win handed Italy its second European title, while England continued to wait for its maiden title in the competition, besides finishing as the runner-up for the first time. However, it seems like the loss for England did not go well with its fans.
In some of the videos that surfaced on social media, fans from both sides were seen clashing in the stadium's basement, with punches and kicks being thrown. Also, some of the English fans could be heard verbally abusing the Italian supporters.
In another video, fans clashed outside the stadium, at a fan park. As of now, it is unclear who instigated the fight.
Meanwhile, more similar videos of clashes emerged on social media. Also, some of the English fans allegedly stormed into the stadium without a ticket.
In the meantime, some of the fans have called for peace.
England's Football Association and the Union of European Football Associations are yet to respond on the same. It is possible that UEFA could sanction FA for the violation of disciplinary conduct by the fans.
