Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
The Netherlands have made it clear that they will ban travelling Welsh fans from entering the country for the next match.
Now that England have qualified for a home match in the next round, will England (or the UK authorities) match this? The four possibilities for 'away' teams at England's next Wembley match are France, Germany, Portugal and Hungary. All these are on the UK 'Amber' list which requires 10 days quarantine on arrival in UK.
This is not a request for 'tit for tat' action, but an attempt to give equal treatment to all teams.
An announcement by the UK government now might cause a re-think by the Netherlands.
