As relayed by several British media, two supporters of the “Three Lions” were rejected from the Khalifa Stadium, where England faced Iran on Monday for their first match in this World Cup.
The two men had disguised themselves as knights, armed with a sword and a cardboard shield, in addition to the cross of Saint George. An outfit that resembles that of the knights of the Crusades, who fought the Muslims in the Middle Ages to take over the holy places of Christianity.
Was it humor or pure provocation? Anyway, the two knights obviously could not attend the English demonstration against Iran (6-2). England, top of Group B, face the United States tonight at 8 p.m. (Belgian time). The Iranians meanwhile are grappling with the Welsh on Friday morning.
