More than 100,000 English fans have signed a petition demanding for England’s Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy to be played again.
England recently lost the final to Italy on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Wembley.
After the match, some fans were left enraged and have now launched a change.org petition to demand that the match be replayed.
The petition was premised on the grounds that it overtly “was not fair at all”, with an image of Giorgio Chiellini’s infamous foul on Saka – which the Italian defender received a booking for – used to highlight this visible unfairness.
The fans added to the petition that there were “pushes, pulls and kicks” from the triumphant Italians, who – it is said – should have received “a red card for their gameplay” with the match replayed with a “non-biased” referee, with a view to give England a better chance of winning.
As at the last count, 100,000 people had signed the petition.
