England defender, Harry Maguire, has revealed how his father was left with suspected broken ribs by ticketless supporters who breached security at Wembley Stadium during the Three Lions’ Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy last Sunday.
Maguire said his father was caught up in the chaotic scenes inside Wembley and was left struggling to breathe.
Recall that the English Football Association, FA, has been charged with four offences by UEFA following the chaos at Wembley Stadium during the Euro 2020 final.
Reacting to the development, the Manchester United captain told The Sun: “My dad was in the stampede. I have not spoken with him too much, but I’m pleased my kids didn’t go to the game.
“It was scary, he said he was scared, and I don’t want anyone to experience that at a football match.
“I’ve seen a lot of videos and have spoken to dad and my family. It was my dad and agent who suffered the most. He was struggling with his breathing afterwards because of his ribs, but he’s not one to make a big fuss – he got on with it.
“I hope we can learn from this and make sure it doesn’t happen again. Dad will always support me and go to the games, but he will be a little bit more aware of everything going on around. We should all be more aware and learn from it.”
