I see now, a few months ago, a Welsh fan was killed before the England/Wales game and from reading the Daily Mail, an England fan, this is the way the newspaper's story runs, killed the Welsh fan, it may have been a fight at first but nonetheless, that is the story.

How tragic, about 2-3 years ago, a French fan got killed in Serbia and it was easy to look down at the Serbians, Eastern Europeans.

The difference in this is, the Serbian violence can most likely be called hooliganism, this before the game at Wembley? Yes, probably hooliganism but it hasn't really been written up much in the press. One wonders why? Truly a sad situation.

Shameful

This is not written up as hoolinganism because this is moresectarianism that is rife in the Scottish league, between Celtic and Rangers, especially with Neil Lennon being the target of bullets in the post, as well as a Hearts fan trying to square up to him on the touchline.
