FA bans England fan pictured mocking Diego Maradona’s death before Italy match in Naples
The Football Association has condemned an England fan who carried a flag to Naples which mocked the death of Diego Maradona.
A photo circulated on social media on Friday of the supporter apparently travelling to England’s Euro 2024 qualifier with Italy. In the image the man is holding an England flag which bears the message: “Diego’s In A Box”.
The FA said: “We strongly condemn the actions of the individual who travelled to Naples with a flag that had a highly offensive message on it. We immediately took steps to have their tickets cancelled before the match. The matter will be reviewed further when we return to England.”
