EFA chief slams English fans for booing, chanting against Germany

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

London: English Football Association Chairman Greg Clarke criticised the behavior of some of the British fans attending the international match against hosts Germany.

Clarke claimed that the behaviour of a section of England fans in Germany was “inappropriate, disrespectful and disappointing,” as they booed Germany’s national anthem and sung chants with reference to Germany’s defeat in World War II, reports Efe.

Supporters could be banned from attending international matches if they are found to be guilty.

“The FA has consistently urged supporters to show respect and not to chant slogans that could be regarded as insulting to others,” Clarke said.

“Individuals who engage in such behaviour do not represent the overwhelming majority of England fans nor the values and identity we should aspire to as a football nation,” he added.

Germany won the friendly match 1-0, with a goal by Lukas Podolski, who retired from international soccer on Wednesday, at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund.
