Lewis Hamilton supported the football team of EnglandMarch 27, 2019
On Monday, the England national football team with a crushing 5-1 beat the team of Montenegro in the qualifying match of the European Championship, which will be held in 2020. However, the victory was overshadowed by the manifestation of racism on the part of Montenegro fans.
Fans chanted insults to British defender Danny Rose, threw foreign objects on the field, used pyrotechnics, and also caused riots and blocked the stairways in the stadium.
Lewis Hamilton supported his compatriots and condemned the behavior of Montenegrin fans.
“I congratulate the England team on yesterday’s victory over Montenegro with a score of 5: 1 – this gives us all a reason to be proud,” the five-time world champion wrote on his pages on social networks. “But these slogans and everything that you encountered is mean and unacceptable.” There should be no place for such behavior in any sport. ”
UEFA has already investigated the scandal; The president of the European Football Federation, Alexander Cheferin, called the incident a “catastrophe”, and now Montenegro is threatened with sanctions – it is possible that a temporary ban will be imposed on the matches at the stadium in Podgorica.
