People Are Furious About Gary Lineker Making Light Of Wembley Stadium Invasion On BBC

The behaviour of a sizeable proportion of England fans was nothing short of disgraceful in the buildup to this evening's Euro 2020 final.

Not content with producing some ugly scenes in London city centre, a number would make their way to Wembley Stadium and attempt to get into the ground without tickets.

Unfortunately a number of them would succeed. What's more, there was some thuggish behaviour on show as large groups assaulted fans already inside once they barged their way in.

A number of journalists who were inside the ground detailed some ugly scenes in the stadium, with many of those who had tickets unable to take their seats after they were taken by the intruders.
