Ahead of England‘s Euro final match against Italy, football fans have descended on London to show their support. However, some areas have become overcrowded and left a wake of broken bottles and beer-soaked England flags. While the festivities may have started in joyous nature, it has since resulted in rowdy behaviour before the match at Leicester Square.
This evening’s historic match will represent England’s first appearance in a major tournament final since 1966.
Many employers have allowed their employees to have Monday off or have a late start in response to the historic event.
Footage of the wreckage of Leicester Square was shown on social media leaving many viewers frustrated by the lack of responsibility of some fans, however.
One Twitter user wrote: “So shameful to see this element, to mar such a fab day.
“God knows what these fans will be like by 8pm.”
Another wrote: “Always the dark side of the beautiful game.
“Horrendous behaviour look at the mess.”
Another said: “This is just embarrassing.
He said: “Kids locked up for last year in lockdown letting steam off.
“As long as no damage no problem.”
Another joked: “I’m sure they’ll all hang around after the game and help clear up.”
