Chris Kamara ‘dodges bottles’ on ‘horrendous’ walk before Euro 2020 final

Chris Kamara was forced to 'dodge bottles' as he made his way to Wembley for the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy.

The TV pundit was caught up in the unsavoury scenes as thousands gathered outside the north London venue prior to kick-off.

He tweeted: "Horrendous walk down Wembley way, ended up dodging bottles and beer thrown in the air & walking on broken glass all the way what is wrong with people."

Kamara's Soccer Saturday colleague, Jeff Stelling, replied: "Why do we always let ourselves down ? These will be the pictures/stories on the front of every European paper tomorrow. Crying shame for Gareth, his squad and every proper football lover."

Journalist Mike Keegan described the atmosphere: "Can only describe scenes outside Wembley as carnage and not in a good way. First line of security clearly breached.

"Dozens hanging around outside turnstiles offering operators cash to let them in and trying to barge in behind punters with tickets. Police nowhere to be seen."

Others called the atmosphere "febrile" while others called the scenes "disgraceful" and "frightening."

A Wembley spokesperson said: "We are dealing with an incident that occurred at the outer security perimeter area of the stadium, with support from police.

"Safety measures were quickly activated… there were no security breaches of people without tickets getting inside the stadium."
