As at Tuesday July 13, 2021, over 100,000 English fans have signed a petition calling for a rematch of England’s Euro 2020 final.
Recall that on Sunday evening July 11, 2021, England lost to Italy on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Wembley Stadium.
After the match loss, some fans were left enraged and have launched a change.org petition to request that the match be replayed.
According to the petition, the match was “not fair at all”, attaching an image of Giorgio Chiellini’s infamous foul on Saka, which the Italian defender was booked for use to highlight this apparent unfairness.
In addition, the petition stated that there were “pushes, pulls and kicks” from the victorious Italians, who it is said – should have had “a red card for their gameplay” with the match replayed with a “non-biased” referee, presumably to give England a better chance of winning.
