London police confirmed on Monday that 49 people had been arrested following part of the Euro 2021 final between England and Italy in Wembley.
After 55 years of waiting, it was expected. The first three Lions finals since the 1966 World Cup were unleashed by English fans this Sunday before the fight against Italy at Wembley. Shortly before the start of the match, it was finally penalized by Harry Kane’s associates (1-1, 3 tabs to 2), with thousands of ticketless fans around or in the hallways of the legendary complex.
Inevitably, it ended up deteriorating. Violent clashes erupted between supporters. In the aftermath of these incidents, London Metropolitan Police said they had arrested 49 people in the final.

19 police officers were injured
If the atmosphere on Sunday had been more festive, there would have been tension with the last moments before the tightening.
“Our police action for the Euro final is coming to an end. Thanks to the tens of thousands of fans who were in good spirits and behaved responsibly, the police wrote in a message posted on social media. We made 49 arrests during the day for various crimes. We have officers on the streets all night.”
Authorities also confirmed that 19 police officers were injured in incidents at the Three Lions Finals. Many players in the English exam were subjected to racist insults on social networks after losing the penalty shootout.
The English Federation has taken a common position to condemn these facts and supported many of the young men on the team, such as Puyago Saga, Marcus Rashford or Jadan Sancho. If football is a party, some people wanted to spoil it across the channel this Sunday. Awful.
