The Euro 2020 final between England and Italy produced a thrilling clash on the field for 120 minutes and was an absolute delight to watch for everyone across the globe. However, it was exactly the opposite outside the football field as English fans couldn't bear the defeat at the hands of Italy. A shocking video was captured after the end of the match where the English fans can be seen attacking the Italian and Asian fans in what was absolutely 'disgusting behavior'.
Hooliganism at Wembley Stadium
The England fans were undoubtedly sour after their dreams of winning their maiden Euro title were shattered on Sunday. As a result, they engaged in some unacceptable actions after the match where they attacked Italy's fans and also vandalized their flag. The English people were captured hitting their Italian counterparts for no reason.
Since Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka missed their penalties, the English fans could also been seen hurling racist abuses on Asian people while attacking them. There have been reports that most of the people who engaged in this act of hooliganism were those who had barged into the stadium without tickets before the match.

It's embarrassing: Gary Lineker
As many Englishmen have raised their voices against this pathetic behavior by a group of people, former English footballer Gary Lineker also requested everyone to stop the racial abuse against the players. Reflecting on the videos of hooliganism at Wembley Stadium getting viral on social media, the 60-year-old added that although it's a minority who is engaging in such behaviour, it's a loud one and embarrassing.
With so many cases coming ahead regarding the inappropriate behaviour by England fans following the loss in the final, everyone will be curious to see if any actions are taken in the coming days against the people who were involved in these acts of violence and racism.
