Hooliganism in Euros: What Africa Can Learn From It

The hooliganism fans at the Euros currently going on moved to higher levels as I watched in disappointment the fans could not comport themselves .what amazes me the most is that before the euro tourney could come off there were fears of security for the tournament after  the unfortunate incidence when the Isis attacked in Paris and Brussels as well .But the situation changed to the EURO Tourney having some uncontrollable fans at the stadium thus hooliganism at full glare look at what happened between England and Russia from bottles thrown to fights this left much to be expected from the EUROS .

Although the excitement was to see  how the European countries will battle it out this time since I expected a lot from the European countries but I was very disappointed due to this hooliganism being displayed .As I watched the matches with keen interest I hope the confederation of African football and the African continent as a whole and stakeholders in African football were watching the events that were unfolding to curb such incidence from happening at the African cup of nations .this is a lesson we can draw from what is happening in the EUROS currently there is a Ghanaian proverb which says “when you see your neighbours beard on fire fetch water by yours “.simply what I am saying is prevention is better than cure .

We do not want such an occurrence it will simply show that we did not learn from what happened at the European tournament also two years ago we saw bits and pieces of such an occurrence  in the match between Ghana and Equatorial Guinea where the Equatorial Guinea fans were throwing bottles at the Ghanaian players for scoring them .we as Africans can curb this lets not wait for it to develop into full blown hooliganism lets find ways to curb it now to have a very interesting tournament.
