Maguire’s father injured ribs at Wembley

England defender Harry Maguire said his father had injured ribs and trouble breathing after being caught up in the surge when hundreds of fans without tickets broke through security barriers to get into Wembley Stadium to watch Sunday’s European Championship final against Italy.

UEFA on Tuesday asked an investigator to study violence by England fans at the game. The English FA has been separately charged with multiple offenses by fans before and during their team’s loss to Italy in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw.

Maguire told The Sun newspaper his father was “in the stampede” and had been scared but didn’t seek medical treatment. “I have seen a lot of videos and have spoken to dad and my family. It was my dad and agent who suffered the most,” Maguire told the tabloid. “He was struggling with his breathing afterwards because of his ribs, but he’s not one to make a big fuss — he got on with it.”

UEFA’s charges against England’s FA also relate to booing Italy’s national anthem, a fan who stopped play by running on the pitch, throwing objects, and lighting fireworks.
