Dutch fans attack English fans

Before the semi-final in Dortmund, an unpleasant incident occurred: Dutch fans attacked a bar where English fans were resting. According to the BBC, the reason for the fight was the desire of the Dutch to take away the flags of the British. Five people suffered minor injuries after being attacked. The Dutch fans hit the English and threw various objects, chairs and benches at them. Both sides also exchanged insults. The police had to intervene in the matter.

The Dutch made a record march

The Dutch were not only notable for their fights. Before the match against England, they organised a march in Dortmund. De Telegraaf reports that around 100,000 people took part. The Dortmund police said they had never seen anything like it. This is a record march in the history of the city. However, curiously, only the second such result at the European Championships. In 2008, 120,000 Dutch people marched before the quarter-final match against Russia.

France criticizes its national team

The French national team lost to Spain (1-2) in the semi-finals of Euro 2024. The team had a weak performance in the tournament and earned criticism at home.

These are Le Figaro’s arguments:

“If you believe in the result and the initial goal, then the defeat in the match against the best team at the European Championship and the subsequent relegation cannot be considered a failure. But can the entire impression that has been left in Germany for almost a month be called a failure? More likely yes. We failed miserably.

What do you remember about the game against Spain apart from Kolo Muani’s goal? Nothing. There was nothing, as the opponent was stronger on all levels. Against Portugal, only the penalty shoot-out, in which there was not a single save from the goalkeeper, caused emotions. And against Belgium, the football was very boring. Not to mention the group stage, where they scored two goals, including an own goal and a penalty. Everyone will forget this tournament very quickly. Kylian Mbappé wants everything, even though he has not shown anything and is light years away from his best level. The same goes for Antoine Griezmann, who is criticised by Deschamps. France had no offensive activity. They simply did not deserve this title.

In Germany, his own fans were condemned for whistling at Cucurella

Throughout the Spain-France semi-final, the fans in Munich’s stadium booed defender Marc Cucurella. Why? It was because the ball hit Cucurelje’s hand in the quarter-final against Germany. Then referee Anthony Taylor didn’t call a penalty, infuriating the German fans. Cucurella was therefore booed every time he touched the ball.

“I don’t care. You need to stay focused. If they talk about it, it’s part of the game.”

And Dani Vivian stood up for his partner: “It’s a shame. No player deserves this. Anyone who comes to a football match to boo someone doesn’t respect the person who does that job.”

German media also apologised for the behaviour of the German fans. Kicker called the fans’ reaction “shameful, stupid and contrary to fair play”. And the daily Die Welt published a full open letter in Spanish: “On behalf of many Germans, we would like to apologise for the behaviour of many fans in the semi-final against Cucurella. It was unsportsmanlike, unfair and it was also a simple transfer of responsibility from the German players to the Spanish.”
