'Disgraceful behavior': Bulgaria vs England UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier interrupted by repeated racist chants by fans.
RT.com 15 Oct, 2019 10:12
England's fixture against Bulgaria in Sofia was blighted by several instances of racist behavior from home fans, including Nazi salutes and monkey chants, which prompted the referee to stop the game on two occasions.
The game, which England would ultimately win 6-0, was first halted just prior to the half-hour mark with England two goals to the good which prompted a stadium announcement which told fans that the game was in danger of being abandoned should the chanting continue.
However, chants aimed at England players including Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford continued. The referee stopped the game once again in the 43rd minute but was restarted after the official consulted with England coach Gareth Southgate.
The game would reach its conclusion but not without further instances of racist chanting from the crowd inside the Vasil Levski Stadium, which was only partially open after Bulgaria were sanctioned for a similar issue following their qualifiers against Kosovo and Czech Republic in June.
It was reported on Tuesday morning that the Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov called called for the resignation of the president of the Bulgarian Football Union in the wake of the incident.
Bulgaria captain Ivelin Popov took issue with the actions of the home support and was seen vigorosly debating sections of fans near the tunnel after the half-time whistle was blown.
UEFA's three-step protocol to deal with racist behavior from supporters dictates that the first warning to a crowd is a message from the stadium announcer. After that, the referee has the power to take players from the field for a further announcement to be made threatening cancellation of the game. The third step is to actually call off the fixture.
The referee advanced the protocol to the first step but, per reports, the players voiced their opinions on the pitch that they would like to continue the game which ruled out the referee taking the players from the field of play.
"I explained to the players that if anything else did happen in the second half we would be coming off," Southgate said following the game.
"We all saw the second half was calmer and that allowed our players to do their talking with the football."
The actions in Bulgaria appear to be the latest symptom of a wave of racist behavior which has affected football in several European countries.
England's Sterling was also on the receiving end of similar chanting in Montenegro, who were punished with a fine and forced to play two games behind closed doors.
However, anti-racism group Kick It Out have called for harsher sanctions to be imposed on football associations who fail to control their supporters.
"We are sickened by the disgusting racist abuse directed at England men's team by Bulgaria supporters - including TV footage which appeared to show Nazi salutes and monkey noises," they said.
"It's now time for Uefa to step up and show some leadership. For far too long, they have consistently failed to take effective action. The fact Bulgaria are already hosting this game with a partial stadium closure for racist abuse shows that Uefa's sanctions are not fit for purpose.
"There can be no more pitiful fines or short stadium bans. If Uefa cares at all about tackling discrimination - and if the Equal Game campaign means anything - then points deductions and tournament expulsion must follow."

‘Pandering to silly trends’: Czech presidential office OUTRAGED after UEFA hands Slavia Prague’s Kudela 10-match ban for racism.
RT.com 15 Apr, 2021 16:20
The office of Czech President Milos Zeman has issued an extraordinary rebuke to UEFA after the decision by European football’s governing body to slap Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela with a 10-game ban for “racist behavior.”
UEFA announced on Wednesday that Kudela would be suspended for a lengthy period after he was accused of labeling Glasgow Rangers player Glen Kamara “a f*cking monkey” in the teams’ explosive Europa League encounter at Ibrox in March.
Kamara was banned for three games for assaulting Kudela in the tunnel after the match, while his Rangers teammate Kemar Roofe was slapped with a four-match suspension for a shocking high tackle which left Slavia goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar with a fractured skull.
The most controversial scenes involved Kudela and Kamara, after the former was seen uttering something into the latter’s ear during a fracas towards the end of the game, eliciting a furious response.
Kamara and Rangers have insisted that Kudela was guilty of racist abuse, although the Czech international maintains he merely swore at Kamara, calling him a “f*cking guy.”
Now the row has dragged in the office of Czech President Zeman, which has accused UEFA of discriminating against non-black people with their verdict.
“You have condemned a decent person without a single piece of evidence,” read a letter from Vratislav Mynar, the director of the office of the president, and addressed to the UEFA Disciplinary Committee.
“You make it impossible for athletes to fulfill their dreams to play in the European League. All this is just to satisfy perverted expectations of a small group of activists and a team, which was unable to win on the field, so now it only shouts empty and hurtful phrases about racism.
“You have turned the fight against racism into a fight of the unsuccessful against the successful. It has become the pinnacle of hypocrisy, positive discrimination, and embarrassing pandering to silly trends."
"Your efforts can lead to the opposite, i.e. a situation where a person with a skin color other than black is discriminated, oppressed, and deprived of his/her rights.
"Therefore, I consider it necessary to oppose your decision.”
The letter continued: “I understand you are probably not accustomed to such behavior but allow me to tell you this: I very much appreciate the fact that the Czech public, across the whole society, does not identify with your verdict.
"On the contrary – you managed to unite old rivals – even temporarily. We will not kneel down in front of you. No threats work against a Czech football fan.”
The incredible reaction comes after some observers claimed Kudela deserved much more than the 10-game ban from UEFA competition which was meted out. Some online even claimed the 34-year-old defended should be suspended from football for life.
After the sanction, lawyers for Kudela reiterated his claims of innocence, saying they were “surprised” by the ruling – but the star nonetheless apologized to his Rangers rival.
"In retrospect, I realize that it was a mistake to go to Glen Kamara at all and tell him anything," said Kudela, who could yet appeal the ban.
"There were emotions in the match and unfortunately I can't take it back now. I'm so sorry."
TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term

TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic
Aug 24, 2021 11:27:06 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.

TsarSamuil: It's no wonder covid hits so many Arabs in the country, stupid bastards..
Aug 24, 2021 11:29:38 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: If I go to H&M a new shirt, if an Arab wants to buy a pair of pants, not only is his whole family along, his friends, even his freaking grandmother is along n all chattering along in a big dumb group of ignorance..

Boro: Thx for the response. I'm not sure... It seems the vaccines work, at least people aren't dying of Covid. Those who get ill have a problem, it's not "just a flu". Maybe it's from a chinese laboratory, who knows...
Aug 24, 2021 13:46:55 GMT -5
Boro: I agree regarding Arabs..
Aug 24, 2021 13:50:39 GMT -5
Boro: Be glad, Sweden isn't overpopulated.
Aug 24, 2021 14:11:49 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: true, vaccines do help somewhat, maybe better than nothing..I hope in 2022 we can come out of this nightmare..

Boro: Horrible times, indeed.
