The European football body UEFA and the Welsh National team players are heading for a collision course over the latter allowance of their children on to the pitch after the final whistle
UEFA has made it clear to the players that players’ children shouldn’t go onto pitch but Wales are set to defy UEFA ‘killjoys’ after their historic Euro 2016 semi-final by encouraging their children on to the pitch after the final whistle – whether they win or lose.
The team has now been told by UEFA that they should not do so at the Stade de Lyon for ‘health and safety’ reasons.
The introduction of the Welsh children provided some of the most natural and beguiling images of the Euro 2016 tournament with the children playing as if they were in a public park and not a 50,000 capacity stadium.
