The Fa Commission Will Conduct An Independent Investigation Into The Turmoil At Wembley Stadium During The Euro 2020 Final

The Football Association has commissioned an independent investigation into the controversy surrounding England’s defeat by Italy in the Euro 2020 final.
The FA said over the weekend that it had alerted the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) of the investigation and promised to find individuals responsible for the “disgraceful incidents” both before and during the match.
“We are committed to fully establish what transpired outside and subsequently inside Wembley Stadium at the UEFA EURO 2020 Final on Sunday 11 July 2021,” the FA said in a statement.
“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 external specialists,” the statement stated. “A main focus of the results will be to guarantee that lessons are learnt and that such heinous situations are never repeated.”
We continue to support the competent authorities in their attempts to identify and hold those responsible accountable.” Tensions erupted before the game as dozens of individuals pushed their way into the stadium, and there were also unpleasant incidents in the stands during the game.
Since then, police have published CCTV photographs of some of the individuals they want to interview.
During extra time, Gareth Southgate’s side lost the final 3-2 on penalties.
Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka were all racially insulted on social media after missing the penalty.
Both those who forced their way into Wembley and the online trolls have been severely denounced, casting a pall over prospects for the United Kingdom and Ireland’s proposed joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup finals.
