The match was originally a closed goalkeeper, but MLSZ took advantage of the rules to invite 30,000 children under the age of 14 to replace fans banned due to racism.
On Saturday night, the Hungarian national team played the European silver medalist England’s team at Puskas Arena in the opening round of the League of Nations first division.
The match was originally a closed goalkeeper match, as the European Football Association (UEFA) initially sanctioned the Hungarian team with three closed goalkeeper matches after last summer’s European Championship for the behavior of Hungarian fans. This was later reduced to two matches and the goalkeeper’s second closed match was suspended for two years.
At the same time, there were spectators for Saturday’s match at Puskas Arena. MLSZ, with the possibilities offered by the rules, invited 30,000 children under the age of 14 to the match free of charge.
On the other hand, the BBC reported on his Twitter page that a
Children accepted in place of fans banned because of racism also drowned English footballers.
England players fell to their knees in the usual way, voicing their opposition to racism and hatred. According to the BBC, the audience, which consisted mainly of children, fully respected the English national anthem, but when the players knelt, there was an uproar from the audience.
Hungary was forced to play the game behind closed doors due to the racism of the fans, and invited more than 30,000 under-14s, who jeered the knee-bending English players. pic.twitter.com/jt652RE310– Sam Cunningham (@samcunningham) 4 June 2022
