Football-wise the Euro 2016 tournament has been pretty exciting until now, with plentiful of last moment goals and comebacks. However, it has been filled with a lot of violence as well.
Since the beginning of the Euro, Russian hooligans have caused constant distress, as they have produced a number of shameful incidents and fights in a couple of cities in France. Moreover, despite UEFA’s warning that the Russia national squad could be disqualified from the tournament, the aggressive fans have not stopped causing trouble.
The latest incident happened outside of France, with a bunch of Russian hooligans attacking absolutely innocent Spanish tourists in Cologne. The reports are that three people have been hurt, with one of them suffering severe injuries. The incident happened outside the territory of France and thus UEFA can’t do absolutely anything about it.
It’s a shame that such events have happened, but hopefully there will be no more violence from now on.
