UEFA could have done more to prevent violent start to Euro 2016

UEFA and French authorities were taken by surprise by the scale of the aggression and violence in the first days of Euro 2016. There were brutal scenes on the streets of Marseille last weekend and also in Lille where known German hooligans engaged in trouble with rival Ukrainians. Furthermore, Croatia fans managed to smuggle in and ignite multiple flares during their game against Czech Republic on Friday night.

The story is too old to be commented.
