I'm so dissapointed, not only because I'm Italian but also because I'm Human...
What did we do to deserve this?
DIGUSTING, was one word that comes to my mind about many incidents that happened during the soccer game and after as well...
Let's start from the beginning when ENGLAND FANS WHERE BOOING OUR TEAM during our national anthem.... which I have to add we take a lot of pride on our anthem... but then we said, it's okay, our guys are strong and while we where watching the beginning of the game in our towns Plaza, we SANG IT OUT LOUD so we didn't have to hear the BOOING THROUGH OUR SCREEN, and wished that our guys would hear us. (Just immagine our emotions during that moment, when all 100 people stood up and sang with them, I even saw some grown men shedding a tear)
Anyways... forgive and forget right?
Then Englad took their early lead, and hey we where not even scared because it was just the beginning, and by the way, that was a nice score i compliment England for that...
It got worse, Italy fans, were brutally attacked by the supporters of England RIGHT AFTER THE MATCH. They kicked our Italian supporters while hurling racial abuses. There is a video that is going viral, and trust me, THERE IS NO REASON BEHIND IT because the abuse didn't stop here...
THEY EVEN HAD THE NERVE TO EXTEND TO HURLING RACIAL ABUSES AT THEIR OWN PLAYERS INCLUDING MARCUS RASHFORD, BUKAYO SAKA AND JADEN SANCHO AFTER THEY FAILED TO SCORE GOALS ON SPOT KICKS.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME ????
I know for a valid fact that this is not the first time when England fans have gone berserk and wild while expressing their emotions. I'm a soccer fan and I know that emotions run wild, but I would never in the word express HATE towards the other team or nationality in general.
In fact, when England made its way into the finals, the police had made over 20 arrests for the fans who had gone nuts and overboard while celebrating that win...
There are so many viral videos around now, some have been removed due to sensitive material... I saw those and I was in shock, I cried, It ruined my day, I didn't even want the cup anymore after that....
I'D WILLINGLY GIVE YOU THE WIN, but don't touch my people, don't harras your own people.... JUST DON'T I don't give a damn about this win anymore because you ruined it, and if I COULD I WOULD GIVE YOU THE DAMN CUP trust me.
Italy fans were attacked after the game in Wembley, London. Seeing all the racial slurs being thrown at Sancho, Rashford and Saka, I'm really happy Italy won. England fans🤮 #Euro2020Final #EURO2020 pic.twitter.com/l0Z43WFvOG— King Melvin👑 (@melvinnasasira) July 11, 2021
I can't express how I'm feeling right now, that could be my brother there, as he planned to actually go there with my partner, but because of work they couldn't.... and I'M SO HAPPY THAT THEY COULDN'T... but the people that where attacked? They are somebodies SON, GRANDSON, BROTHER, HUSBAND.... even a CHILD WAS ATTACKED FOR GODS SAKE!!!
I'm not even joking, I'm writing this with tears on my eyes and as you can see I have not offended English fans or English people nowhere in this post, also because I know not everyone is like that and not everyone agreed to that chaos... This is so much more than a soccer game, this is a heartbreaking fiasco.
But allow me to say just three words, from the my deepest Italian roots to your English ones (to those who did this) : SHAME ON YOU !!!!!!!!!!
