Uefa says Dutch training session was like a party (no, not the Nazi Party)
MARK van Bommel, the Holland captain, says a few hundred of the Polish fans watching his side train in Krakow made monkey noises at the black players. Here’s how Uefa reported the incident at the European Championship finals. It was a “party atmosphere”. Which party is not specified, but some suggest Nazi Party:
Mild sunshine warmed the stadium and ‘Ooohs’ and ‘Aaahs’ regularly emanated from the stands as the players enjoyed a session of finishing practice, with the likes of Arjen Robben, Dirk Kuyt and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar burying some nice goals. At one point, a Mexican wave even washed over the stands, leaving the Netherlands in little doubt how much UEFA EURO 2012 has captured the imagination of the local population…
Move long. Nothing to see here….
