Latest News Today – Opinion: The Racism Of The Euro Final


One question about English football has been comprehensively answered. Why does the English team take the knee to insist Black Lives Matter? Because racist English fans and dog-whistling English politicians pick on black football players. It’s not complicated.

Boris Johnson has shown that there are votes in being winningly racist. Jibes about ‘letter-boxed’ Muslim women and blacks’ faces split in ‘watermelon smiles’ have won him and his party anti-woke brownie points. Priti Patel, Johnson’s avowedly nationalistic Home Secretary, refused to discourage spectators from booing the English team in England when they took the knee on the ground that as citizens, these racist hecklers had a right to express their political views on ‘gesture politics’. Famously charmless, with no recourse to bloke-ish whiteness, Patel’s dog-whistling comes from a different place. In a deft piece of white-substitution, Patel has repurposed the vicious majoritarianism of her ancestral country to Tory ends.

The fans seen rioting in video clips after England lost, randomly attacking scared and bewildered bystanders, did what they did because they were drunk, inadequate, aggrieved Little Englanders who couldn’t recognize their unlovely selves in the multi-racial team that represents England. They rampaged because this is what drunken English fans traditionally do at international tournaments. They did what they did partly because political leaders like Johnson and Patel had, with their equivocation, given them reason to believe they were on their side.

Tyrone Mings, a member of the current English team who played in this tournament, made the connection between ministerial dog-whistling and the tsunami of racist abuse and violence that followed England’s loss. “You don’t get to stoke the fire at the beginning of the tournament by labelling our anti-racism message as ‘Gesture Politics’ and then pretend to be disgusted when the very thing we’re campaigning against, happens.” He was referring to Patel’s ostentatious denunciation of the racism directed at the three young black players who missed scoring from their penalties in the climactic shootout.

England players after Euro 2020 final defeat.

At moments like these, some student of English football will pop up as if on cue to sagely observe that things were worse in the Eighties or the Nineties. Ergo, things are better now and that should be factored into public lamentation about racist yobs. And this is true. In the early Eighties, you had to bring your dustbins and milk bottles indoors if league football came to town because the travelling hordes would use the (then) metal bins to drum on and smash the bottles.

If you were an Indian student in 1981, bent over a slipped bicycle chain and found yourself surrounded by skinhead stragglers from the second division game just played in your town, chanting ‘Paki bastard’, you might have been pleased to know that 40 years later, this was less likely to happen. But in the here and now of last Sunday, this historical decline in hooliganism was probably cold comfort to the men and women beaten up and abused by English lumpen in the aftermath of the Wembley final.

Some online critics of English excess, Indians amongst them, were keen to declare that they had rooted for Italy, because it was both the better team and the more evolved football culture. Roberto Mancini’s men were the better team and it was reasonable for a neutral to root for them. But not because Italian football is less racist or violent than English football.

Italian fans who travel to support the national team are less violent and destructive than their English counterparts. There are two main reasons for this. One, they aren’t as affluent as the English and don’t travel as much as English fans do and consequently don’t have English football’s global reputation for collective mayhem. Two, they are less invested in national team football. English middle class fans who only watch football when the national team plays because they are in it for the braying adrenalin rush rather than the game itself (which is played at a much higher level in league competition) are more numerous, boorish, violent and entitled than their Italian counterparts. That’s why they have a terrible reputation.

But at the level of domestic league football, Italian football fans are notoriously enmeshed with both criminal mafias and far-right fascist groups. Their racism and their capacity for violence in league football is of a different order from their English counterparts. Club fans in England now rarely riot, whereas Italian fans still have vicious travelling contingents because they are often funded by fan groups called ultras or tifosi. These ultras often have financial links with the mafia. Clubs are so beholden to these groups that they subcontract ticket sales to ultras who then sell them with a cut reserved for organised crime.

Ultras can be, and often are, coordinators of racist chanting. Mario Balotelli who was born in Sicily to Ghanaian parents has had his career stifled by virulent racism in Serie A. When he played for Inter against Juventus, he was tormented by monkey chants and fans shouting “There are no black Italians” in chorus. Worse still, administrators and officials routinely refuse to see that Italian club football has a racism problem. This is in very real contrast to the willingness of English football clubs in recent times (at every level) to at least formally recognize and denounce racism in football.

It’s not surprising that Boris Johnson and Priti Patel responded to the English team’s anti-racist stance in the way that they did. Neither has any real interest in club football. Before the Euros began, they saw a culture war opportunity in the players’ decision to take a knee. This was a multi-racial team with players with a habit of speaking their minds – and a manager willing to speak up for them. Marcus Rashford had twice forced ‘U’ turns upon Johnson’s government. The symbolic connection with Black Lives Matter was a chance to weaponise the values of a tiresomely progressive football team in the Tory war against ‘woke’.

Unluckily for them, Gareth Southgate’s team was unexpectedly successful. Johnson and Patel turned on a dime and became the team’s most visibly enthusiastic groupies, desperate to ride Southgate’s bandwagon. Then England lost, and the yob rabble turned on Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, the three black players who failed to score with their penalty kicks. Having helped set this mob in motion, Johnson and Patel cranked out pro forma condemnations of racist abuse. Then Tyrone Mings set words to what everyone was thinking, and called them out for the hypocrites they were.

Latest News Today – UEFA EURO 2020 Final, Italy vs England: Boris Johnson





UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the England football team “played like heroes” after they lost on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020 final. Terming the loss as a “heartbreaking result”, Johnson tweeted that the team had done the country proud. “That was a heartbreaking result to end #Euro2020 but Gareth Southgate and his @England squad played like heroes,” Boris Johnson tweeted. They have done the nation proud and deserve great credit,” he added.

England failed to end their 55-year wait for a major international trophy as Leonardo Bonucci cancelled Luke Shaw’s early goal at Wembley before Gianluigi Donnarumma’s heroics between the posts saw the Azzurri win the coveted trophy for the second time.

Luke Shaw, playing as a left wingback with Gareth Southgate opting for a three-man defence, applied a lovely finish to a cross from fellow wingback Kieran Trippier in the 2nd minute to give England an early lead, sending the crowd at Wembley into delirium.

Italy seemed rattled by the goal, but as the first half wore on, Italy grew into the game.

Federico Chiesa, who scored in the semi-final against Spain, was again Italy’s biggest threat, but it was centre-back Leonardo Bonucci who brought Roberto Mancini’s team back into the game after dominating for a sustained period.

Bonucci, who was adjudged player of the match, capitalised after Marco Veratti headed towards goal from a Lorenzo Insigne corner and Jordan Pickford clawed the ball away but only to the post.

Neither team could score as the 90 minutes came to an end and the match went to extra-time, but not before Chiesa had to be substituted due to a niggle.

Both teams kept it tight in extra-time and Southgate brought on Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford with penalties looming.

Jordan Henderson, who had come on as a substitute himself, was one of those sacrificed ahead of the penalty shootout that seemed imminent.

England took the early lead in the penalty shootout after Andrea Belotti missed Italy’s second spot-kick and Harry Maguire converted his effort.

Bonucci then kept his calm to make it 2-2 before Rashford hit the post.

Federico Bernardeschi stepped up for Italy’s third and he calmly slotted it down the middle.

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnaruma then saved Jadon Sancho’s penalty giving Jorginho the chance to seal it for the Azzurri.

Promoted

But the midfielder, who had put away the deciding spot-kick in the semi-final against Spain, saw his effort saved by Jordan Pickford.

Young winger Bukayo Saka was designated as the final penalty taker for England and Donnarumma rose to the occasion again as Italy claimed their second European Championship title.

Latest News Today – UFOs Remain Unidentified in US Intelligence’s Final


A highly awaited US intelligence report on dozens of mysterious unidentified flying object sightings said most could not be explained, but did not rule out that some could be alien spacecraft.

The unclassified report said researchers could explain only one of 144 UFO sightings by US government personnel and sources between 2004 and 2021, sightings that often were made during military training activities.

Eighteen of those, some observed from multiple angles, appeared to display unusual movements or flight characteristics that surprised those who saw them, like holding stationary in high winds at high altitude, and moving with extreme speed with no discernible means of propulsion, the report said.

Some of the 144 might be explained by natural or human made objects like birds or drones cluttering a pilot’s radar, or natural atmospheric phenomena, the report said.

Others could be secret US defence tests, or unknown advanced technologies created by Russia or China, it said.

Yet others appeared to require more advanced technologies to determine what they are, it said.

The sightings of what the report calls unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) “probably lack a single explanation,” said the report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

“We currently lack sufficient information in our dataset to attribute incidents to specific explanations.”

The report made no mention of the possibility of — or rule out — that some of the objects sighted could represent extra-terrestrial life.

The military and intelligence community have conducted research on them as a potential threat.

“UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to US national security,” the report said.

Some could be US rivals’ intelligence collection operations or represent other technology so advanced that the United States military has nothing similar.

The report was ordered after more UFO sightings by military pilots became public and pilot and radar videos leaked out showing flying objects behaving strangely with no explanation.

It stressed that pilots and their aircraft are ill-equipped to identify out-of-the-ordinary objects floating around the skies.

The only one of the 144 incidents in the years covered by the report that was explained turned out to be a large deflating balloon.

The nine-page report released Friday did not discuss any specific incidents.

It was the public version of a more detailed classified version being supplied to the armed services and intelligence committees of Congress.

Mark Warner, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the frequency of UFO reports “appears to be increasing” since 2018.

“Today’s rather inconclusive report only marks the beginning of efforts to understand and illuminate what is causing these risks to aviation in many areas around the country and the world.,” Warner said in a statement.

“The United States must be able to understand and mitigate threats to our pilots, whether they’re from drones or weather balloons or adversary intelligence capabilities,” Warner said.

At the Pentagon, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks issued a memorandum ordering more systematic reporting of UAPs encountered during military training and testing.

“Incursions into our training ranges and designated airspace pose safety of flight and operations security concerns, and may pose national security challenges,” said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

The department “takes reports of incursions — by any aerial object, identified or unidentified — very seriously, and investigates each one,” Kirby said.

India vs New Zealand Live Score: India conceded a 32-run lead in the first innings.© Twiter/BCCI




Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill gave India a steady start in the second innings in session three on Day 5. Earlier, India struck regularly with the second new ball but New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson played a gutsy knock of 49 runs to help his side take a crucial 32-run lead in the first innings. Mohammed Shami claimed four wickets while Ishant Sharma took two wickets on Day 5 to dismiss New Zealand for 249 runs. The ill-fated inaugural World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand resumed at Southampton on Tuesday after an hour’s delay following the latest rain interruption to blight the showpiece match. 91 overs are scheduled to be bowled in three sessions of play today, BCCI confirmed. After rain meant the whole of Monday’s play was washed without a ball bowled — the second time in the match this had had happened after Friday’s opening day went the same way — there were hopes the match would resume as scheduled at 10:30 am local time (0930 GMT). But instead players and supporters at south coast county Hampshire’s headquarters had to wait until 11:30 am (1030 GMT) instead. (LIVE SCORECARD)

Latest News Today – India vs New Zealand WTC Final, Day 4, Live Score: 1st


India vs New Zealand Live Score: The first session on Day 4 was washed out due to rain.© Twitter/ICC




As per the latest updates, rain continued to play spoilsport after the opening session of Day four was washed out due to rain. After weather-related interruptions on the first three days of play in the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand, the rain Gods didn’t seem to be kind on Day 4 as well. On Day 3, New Zealand were excellent with both bat and ball, bowling out India for 217 runs before a 70-run opening stand between Devon Conway and Tom Latham put India on the backfoot. However, in the last session, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma got the Indian team back into the game with the wickets of both openers. Captain Kane Williamson is at the crease along with the most senior batsman of the side in Ross Taylor. New Zealand were 101/2 at stumps on Day 3. While the advantage of two wickets in the final session lay with India, everything depends on how both the teams go in the first session on Day 4. Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will look to exploit the rough patches on the pitch while New Zealand will be hoping to go past the Indian score and take a big first-innings lead.
