Why was England banned from stadiums?

England were banned from the stadium during the Euro 2020 final due to crowd trouble.

During the final, thousands of fans tried to enter Wembley without tickets, while some Italy players were pelted with missiles from the crowd.

As a result, England were charged with breaching Article 16(2)(h) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations for lack of discipline or lack of discipline by their supporters. .

In addition, UEFA fined England £85k and gave them a one-match stadium ban which will come into force next year if Three Lions fans are again involved in misconduct.

Why are kids attending England v Italy when it’s behind closed doors?

UEFA updated its law in 2019 to allow football clubs and national teams to invite local children to games behind closed doors.

Article 73 of the UEFA regulations allows schools and football academies to invite children up to the age of 14 to a match free of charge, if accompanied by an adult.

Last week England played in front of a crowd of 40,000 in Hungary and Gareth Southgate was left frustrated as local children called out the Three Lions for kneeling.

However, he said he would not comment on whether allowing children to watch the match was the right decision, but said he was “surprised” by the number.

The FA will also invoke Article 73 but will only invite 3,000 children.

What has been said?

Gareth Southgate has admitted it is a ‘shame’ that England will play behind bars.

The English gaffer said: “We are now embarrassed to be playing behind closed doors at home.

“Usually when you see these things happening overseas, we all think in a big way that it’s somebody else’s problem and how this country should be dealt with – and now it’s us.

“It’s not a good optic for our country.”
