UEFA Reveal Their True Colours As The Anti-Craic Police

UEFA charged Wales for the most ludicrous reasons following their Euro 2016 exit at the hands of Portugal.

The Welsh team and fans have been one of the highlights of the tournament, so for the governing body to charge them over bringing their children onto the pitch to celebrate victories over Northern Ireland and Belgium is beyond moronic.

UEFA officials complained, and a warning was handed down to the FAW for future games. Essentially that means that their good behaviour and desire to celebrate has landed them in the same boat as Russia after their fans rioted in their opening game against England.

How stupid is that?

FAW chief executive expressed his disappointment over the charge:

I think it was hugely popular among the people in the ground to see those young kids on the pitch. Some of those goals that were scored in front of the fans (by the kids) got as big a cheer as some of the other goals scored in the game. It was just magical to see and it again shows you the openness and togetherness of this squad.

So while the rest of the world who watched thought it was fantastic to see such great gestures, the anti-craic police of UEFA have decided to crush the fun out of it.

UEFA's statement doesn't make things any better:

It is a European Championship not a family party. A stadium is not the most safe place for small kids.

Alright you uptight suits.
