Euro 2012: Governments of Poland and Ukraine must act now on racism or their tournament


The Polish authorities have called Sol Campbell to visit his country when he warned fans, an ethnic minority. "You, you could return in a coffin"
Documentary on Monday night the BBC showed a monkey sing together in games that were the Nazis through a routine, violent attacks on Asian audiences in a match in Ukraine and the anti-Semitic imagery in Krakow on British soil is welcoming 30 kilometers from the Auschwitz extermination camp.
These disturbing images on television and was released at a time when European football's efforts to tackle xenophobia and discomfort in the area of ​​discipline. The problem is that not only former Soviet republics, where the Nazis came for the local population and local psychopath hired to support slaughtered in the killings.
He also studied in the UK, with a large ethnic mix, police, racist slogans on board, the student was jailed for racist behavior Fabrice Muamba on Twitter for the former England captain John Terry, custody of the insults Anton Ferdinand accused racist. Terry refused payment.
Also Tuesday, the town of Swindon, former black players forgive "inappropriate" comments about him by Paolo Di Canio, a director who used the fascist salute in games in Italy and expressed his admiration for Mussolini.


Terry Loftus Road incident was only the UK racist controversial feature is the panorama of the police and administrators were not mocked with the outbreak of fighting in Ukraine and black players was annoying sounds animals.
Manchester City Mario Balotelli fell on Tuesday, was warned off the court, where he was to dehumanize the victim of a new treatment, and families in England, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has already canceled plans to participate in the European Championship in 2012.
"It was a very one-sided," said Jacek Cichocki Polish interior minister. "What disturbs me most is the fact that they were talking about is people feel the security of this country [Campbell] If they had asked the experts -. Fact that the British police -. So I think our reaction would have been other "
Meanwhile, the Football Association has confirmed that a group of English players and staff, you should visit the Auschwitz and Birkenau with the Foundation for Holocaust Education. Other team members to travel to the Schindler factory in Krakow.
FA chairman David Bernstein, said: "There is much to learn and understand, and believe that to offer football to society, to talk about intolerance in all its forms."
Since the panoramic study seems to confirm the concerns of the white players and fans had a special rescue bewilderment of Nazi brutality in countries where millions have been their original authors of the Second World War killed.
Much antagonism was a local or tribal in nature between the two rivals in the national championships juries - especially in Krakow, where the Wisla Krakow and maintain a strong mutual dislike. Hopefully the wrath of the Church of the UEFA by the presence of an international audience overwhelmed and extremists must not be afraid of the high ticket prices.
However, the applied potential attacks of the reasons why it is extremely high. As a new light seems thrown in the host country of racism increasingly organized and ideologically. FIFA decided to award the 2018 World Cup in Russia raises the same concerns.
Many Eastern feel unjustly criticized by Western observers. Without doubt, the worst of the latest example of racism suffered by black England players Bernabeu in Madrid, Spain, where the team played friendly in 2004. Song of the suit is not tens but hundreds of spectators on the ground.
5000 FA says England fans will travel to Ukraine on official channels and not sure how many people buy tickets by other means.
Travel agents reported in the desperate calls of British fans of his travels and safe returns to cancel.
Racism is not the only explanation. The high price and limited availability of hotel rooms and the large distances between sites have increased the appeal in a rocking chair and HDTV.
UEFA and FIFA are reluctant to large areas of Eastern Europe, neo-Nazis minorities.
Missionary rhetoric, the desire to open new markets for hides, is at the head of the governing bodies to justify the need for new horizons.
Monday night broadcast UEFA confirmed that the arbitrators the power of teams on the ground, where most are racist by the crowd.
Few would have bet on a game to find sufficient grounds for the official abandonment of the next month, but only the bravest can only take this step.
The second is based on the history of fine pastries based on institutional racism in a position close to the Swiss lakes are basa.
Because xenophobia is not processed properly pan-European level (except through the slogans) Football is a sudden increase significantly in response to competition three weeks.
It is unfortunate that many fans have already marked up to € 2012, "bad" and assign it to a kind of mental junk drawer.
Only two bodies can not save his reputation for breaking the law and these bands: Poland and Ukraine.

Serena wonderful by Virginie Razzano in 1st round at French Open


Paris: More than ten years, what state of health or his game, no matter the opponent or the sand, always Serena Williams won the first round matches in Grand Slam tournaments.


Each time.


Until the French Open on Tuesday. When Williams was two points for a win nine times, but surprisingly successful businesses unannounced and 111 against investment in France's Virginie Razzano.


In front of the theater, full last 23 minutes with 30 points, more than enough for the whole group, the rise and fall of the great shot-making and the nerves, and the stormy protests from the audience when President Tuomari Razzano tied points. This can be seen by you, and miss the game, including five break points of the waste Williams, seven and a game that is saved until it finally becomes Razzano care 3 hours and 3 minutes after they began performing .


In all, only on Tuesday, Williams was 46 and 46 tennis opens from the top in places, and the meetings usually have routines and drama-free as he pleases, so although the goal - and 13 times, the end result - it was a great championship.


Not this time. Now, Williams could be the first round of a Grand Slam record of 46-1 after a thrilling final solution, 4-6, 7-6 (5), lost 6-3 in the red clay of Roland Garros Razzano.


Fifth-seeded Williams, considered by many as the favorite before the tournament, led 5-1 second set tie-break before the next 13 points in a row. Suddenly, his photographs do not always have the sex appeal of habit, his court coverage was normal.


"I've been through a lot in my life ... and I'm not happy, is in no case," said Williams, his eyes filled with tears. "I always thought that things could be worse."


30-year-old American returned to action last year, losing about 10 months due to a series of health crises, including the operation of two feet and a blood clot, a section of size, he said, changed his view the world.


Philippe Chatrier Rowdy would be to the public, the event, and Razzano, of course, because of their citizenship. However, their support was particularly strong due to his recent funeral in France Razzano known married - Stéphane Vidal, in his old car - at the age of 32 years died of a brain tumor in May 2011 just fit over a week before first round of French Open last year.


She encouraged him to transfer and participate in the tournament, which he did to his memory by improving the field, the game in honor of the black band on the shirt. When dressing, resulting in straight sets to his left, wearing a gold chain, Vidal gave his gift to celebrate Valentine's Day a few years earlier.


"In reality, the past is gone," he said Tuesday, when Razzano went to cramps in the legs of others. "I think I've done mourning. Today I feel good. It took a while."


Williams said .... "I know her story and her husband, we have to tell the whole story, I mean, I'm almost dead, and even Venus is fighting so you know, that's life You know, depends on how you deal with he said. apparently works very well. "


Output Williams was by far the most newsworthy events third day at Roland Garros, where Maria Sharapova won 6-0, 6-0, and Rafael Nadal began the specifications seventh victory in the French Championship Series Open.


Williams arrived on Tuesday after winning their last 17 games, all in the sand. He moved to what would have been his last game, said the Italian Open semi-final on 19 May under appeal at a sore lower back, but on Friday it was better to blame, then bent by the fact that injury to Razzano daunting.


"No, no, no. I felt nothing unusual," says Williams, the French Open in 2002 with 13 Grand Slam trophies. "I was 100 percent healthy."


Sometimes when you lose points, Williams, leans forward and build on their relationship with the bat, but could be extended to the lower back. He took it and carried his bat out for errors.


And there were many in the 47, 11 more than his enemies. Williams has to be understood as their flight to significant advantage. Select 5-1 tiebreaker he lost in the next six points, the series so that the end of the first seven points of the third.


"I've tried. I'll have my pictures, that always works for me," said Williams. "It did not work today."


It is not affected by the OK button to 5-4 and 15-30, and a second set of Razzano in the price. The party was about an hour and half - half, it would happen - and Williams had two break points. Razzano responded to an ace. At 5:06 in the series, showed actual Razzano nervousness, or two failures twice again to 15-30. Williams have again two-over. But instead of serving Razzano, to continue the game.


Then came the tiebreaker in which Williams appeared in control. At 02.05, Razzano shot near the baseline, Williams thinks he was gone. But President Judge Eva Asderaki considered that the ball was in Asderaki brings the number of the second point also helps Razzano.


Asderaki play an important role, the first warning of a bad Razzano, then twice a grant from the Williams grunted loudly as the French themselves during training in the stock market. Williams found the whole thing a bewildering: Asderaki was a chair umpire, who immediately - without notice - took a point away from Williams for his injury to Sam Stosur in the final of U.S. Open in September.


"Well, you know, has no favorite among the tour," said Williams. "I was really a kick."


Led to an outbreak Razzano 5-0, and the third, but Williams - brave as a competitor in the sport - not go quietly. He stood 5-3, and then was an epic experience, both as it should.


Search Razzano, gassed, grabbed her between the legs of the points and double the accused, a 30-all to take. 13-stroke point, then, Asderaki interrupted and the game at 30-40, because of obstacles. Fans of the fans booed, whistled and clapped his hand upon the green stadium seats plastic (Asderaki booed when he left late in the game).


This point of the introduction of Williams first break, but sent a statement across. Moments later, Razzano was his first match point, but - kulauksella! - A double fault. Pattern was established.


Ultimately, number 12, two days in the game, Williams fell right into the network. And a match point No. 8, he sailed back along.


That's it. Razzano is ignored and the Internet handshake, Williams delighted to have won - and what could have been avoided, his 21st with the first round of the departure of 47 runs.


Williams collapsed shoulders. For the first time in the Grand Slam of his career that began in the Australia Open in 1998 when he was 16, Williams comes home a game.


And was that he had in his hand.


"I had never felt anything missing or anything," Williams said. "I felt I could not pass the ball in play."
