Euro 2020: Over 127,000 English fans sign petition calling for final match between England and Italy to be replayed
Some aggrieved supporters of the Three Lions have reportedly hit online to get as many people to sign a petition to have England’s crucial game against Italy in the Euro 2020 finals replayed.
So far over 100,000 English fans have signed the petition, days after Italy defeated England on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Wembley, England on July 11.
After the match loss, some fans, mainly English fans, who were left devastated, have now launched a petition on change.org asking for the match to be replayed.
The fans believe the Italians did not win the match fairly as they heckled the English players numerous times leading to their equalizer when England went ahead early on in the game.
The petition read;
“The match on 11/07/2021 was not fair at all. After Italy only receiving a yellow card for dragging England players like they were slaves.
All the pushes, pulls and kicks and Italy was still allowed to win? Definitely biased. Italy should have been given a red card for their gameplay and the rematch should happen with a non-biased referee.
This was not fair at all.”
