England defender Harry Maguire said that his father sustained rib injuries and struggled to breathe after being trampled by fans during crowd disturbances at Wembley Stadium before the Euro 2020 final against Italy.
Supporters clashed with each other and officials, breached security cordons and charged into the perimeter area of Wembley before the start of Sunday’s game, which Italy won in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw.
British police said 19 of its officers were injured while 86 people, including 53 at the venue, were arrested.
UEFA on Tuesday asked an investigator to study violence by England fans at the game. The English Football Association (FA) has been separately charged with multiple offenses by fans before and during their team’s loss.
