We understand that some of them were stopped because they tried to cross the security line set up by the police in the center. Others have been found with knives, jacks and clubs and then, speaking as a fan, I say that this is sport, and not a battle. Whoever goes to the game as if he were going to war is a criminal and I think there is nothing more to add. “There is also time for a recommendation:” Our strong suggestion to the authorities here not to serve alcohol in glass containers is was heard – says the Ambassador – but groups of drunken Dutch supporters have been around since yesterday and when they are in these conditions they become dangerous, as we saw last night: be careful “
