The Italian press have claimed there is a conspiracy, which came to light after England was awarded a penalty at the extra-time in the semi-final against Denmark.
The Italian press said the penalty which Harry Kane put inside the neat was due to the involvement of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s intervention in the Super League.
The penalty, which was won by Raheem Sterling, which a lot of people called “diving” because no pressure was seen. Without the usage of VAR, the referee, Danny Makkelie without no hesitation pointed to the penalty spot.
Italian press like La Gazzetta dello Sport and others described the decision as non-existent because the referee didn’t even consider taking a look at the replay using a VAR.
Another thing people and the press are looking at is the fact that England has enjoyed playing in their home stadium with 5 matches at Wembly and just 1 match in Rome. The final against Italy will also be at Wembly making it a home tournament for the England.
The Super League is a big discussion on the internet these days as England top 6 teams were announced as part of the super league project which got disbanded in just 3 days after a backlash from England team fans.
The British PM, Johnson Boris also described the creation of the super league as a ‘cartel’ and said it’s not good for football. He added at that time he would do anything in his capacity to ensure it doesn’t happen.
UK PM, Boris said “I think it’s not in the interests of fans, it’s not in the interests of football,”.
“How can it be right to have a situation in which you create a kind of cartel that stops clubs competing against each other, playing against each other properly, with all the hope and excitement that gives to the fans up and down the country?
“These clubs, these names, originate from famous towns and cities in our country. I don’t think that it is right that they should be somehow dislocated from their home towns, home cities, taken and turned into international brands and commodities that just circulate the planet, propelled by the billions of banks, without any reference to fans and to those who have loved them all their lives.”
And when he was asked what he would do or how to plan to stop it, he said “What we want to do first of all is back the FA, back the Premier League and hope that we can thwart this proposal before it goes very much further.”
