Italy, leaving today for tomorrow’s match against Austria at Wembley for Euro 2020, will not kneel on the pitch in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Corriere della Sera explains this, underlining that Uefa has received no requests in this sense from either the Azzurri or the Austrians. Read also “The fool with Wales – it reads -, half team standing and half kneeling, must not be repeated. Everyone will have to behave in the same way. The players already agree on this. They are still discussing what the position will be. Definitive. At Wembley we will remain standing, like the Austrians. No request – writes Corsera – has been made to UEFA and there is no more time to change. It is difficult to imagine that Italy can change its attitude going forward in the tournament “. The line, we read again, seems to also be shared by Carlo Ancelotti, the new coach of Real Madrid, “who, interviewed by Il Giornale, said: ‘It is not essential to kneel for a few seconds. The question cannot be resolved. The true theme is: educate the new generation on the issue of racism that is still present in our societies’ “.
