After Disgraceful Wembley Scenes The Fa Has Launched An Independent Investigation Into The Euro 2020 Final

The FA has announced that an independent assessment is underway to guarantee that the “disgraceful incidents” from the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium are never repeated.
Violence and chaos marred the final on July 11, when Italy defeated England in a penalty shootout to win their second European title.
Despite the Met Police advising fans not to travel to Wembley without a ticket, fans and authorities battled both inside and outside the stadium.
Several fans disobeyed this instruction and broke security cordons as well as surging into the stadium’s perimeter area before kick-off, prompting the FA to launch an investigation into the facts and lessons learned.
“We are keen to fully understand what transpired outside and subsequently inside Wembley Stadium on Sunday 11 July 2021 at the Uefa Euro 2020 Final,” the statement stated.
“An independent review led by Baroness Casey of Blackstock has been commissioned to report on the facts and circumstances involved,” we told DCMS over the weekend.
“It will consult with all parties involved, as well as other specialists.”
“A significant focus of the findings will be to guarantee that lessons are learned and that such heinous acts are never repeated,” says the report.
“We will continue to collaborate with the necessary authorities in order to assist them in identifying and prosecuting those who are culpable.”
