UEFA has threatened to disqualify the teams of England and Russia in the Euro 2016 due to overflow occurred during Saturday’s game.

Russia, host of the World-2018, and England will be disqualified from the Euro-2016 in case of further violence: UEFA, which runs the tournament, raised the tone Sunday after scuffles between supporters Russian and English at stadium and in the city in Marseille on Saturday.  the Manchester United star Wayne Rooney will she pay for the attitude of his fans? The executive committee of UEFA or government of European football, wanted to be firm in the wake of urban guerrilla scenes Saturday on the Old Port before England and Russia (1-1), followed by fighting at the Velodrome in the end of the game.  the violence largely dented the image of the 3rd World sports event and necessitated a strong message from UEFA.  ++  the English Fed takes the threat of UEFA to “serious” She ” will not hesitate to impose additional sanctions on the English federation (FA) and Russian (RFU), including a possible disqualification of their selection tournament if such violence occur again “ , she threatened in a statement.  the threat of exclusion is independent of the disciplinary proceedings opened on Sunday against the Russian federation because of the jostling and wrangling caused by a load of fans in the stadium at the final whistle.  the violence in the streets of Marseille made 35 injured, including three 7 hospitalized in serious condition. The English fan struck with an iron bar liked was between life is death Saturday was in “stable condition” , said Sunday morning the regional prefecture told AFP.  Ten people – Englishmen, an Austrian, a German, French and Russians – were Sunday custody.

British Government concerned

By displaying its firmness, UEFA also wants to avoid that clashes in Marseille do not spread. To avoid a repetition in Paris, the vigilance instructions had been strengthened by the French authorities for the Turkey-Croatia match, also considered at risk, which was played at Parc des Princes on Sunday afternoon.  The game went smoothly, ending with a 1-0 success for Croatia. The eruption in the field hugging a fan striker Luka Modric will perhaps give a new headache to UEFA for the issue of safety.  More than 1,500 members of security forces were deployed to secure the Parc des Princes and the fan zone on the Champ de Mars. Despite fears, the atmosphere before the game was good child.  One small hitch, according to a police source, some fifty people dressed in dark uniforms, presumably Parisian supporters, sought to challenge the Croatian fans. But riot police pushed and quickly dispersed the troublemakers.  In the second match of the day Sunday, Poland faces Northern Ireland at 18:00 in Nice, where fights involving Northern Irish fans also broke out Saturday night .  the world champion Germany will compete against Ukraine in Lille (2100), but the beginnings of the Mannschaft now take second place.  Indignation or concern the reactions have followed all day on Sunday after brawls in the Old Port.  The British government expressed “deep concern at the violence that occurred in Marseille, including reports by English supporters attacked by rival fans” .  Are there will be a vendetta of temptation? The British press warns against the geographic and temporal proximity between the next match Russians (Wednesday in Lille) and the British (Thursday Lens).

Prohibit the sale of alcohol?

The fans flow management raises anyway questions for other risk matches in this Euro: Germany-Poland Thursday at the Stade de France, England and Wales on the same day at Lens, and finally Ukraine-Poland again in Marseilles on June 21, the day of the music festival, an event that attracts a large crowd in the street late into the night.  UEFA acknowledged Sunday “the problems of separation” between fans at the Velodrome and promises a “device enhanced” security personnel in stages of Euro-2016 in “collaboration with the French authorities” .  the body of European football also expressed “publicly its support for the work and efforts of the French authorities and security forces to ensure the smooth progress and security of the tournament in the current climate (reference to terrorism) “ .  Another debate launched after the black day on Saturday, one on binge drinking by potentially violent fans. Eric Ciotti, Deputy Secretary General of RS, believes that “the sale of alcohol to take away should be prohibited on game days in the host cities and in the fan zones and consumption in certain areas at risk” .
