"Black or white we have football under our skin."


Fifty years ago Eusebio was one of the stars of the tournament, winning the Golden Boot as top scorer. This was a very different era to now. With few exceptions European football was an all-white team game. In the 1970s as black players started to break into first team squads and to represent their countries they would often face the most appalling racism. Today both club sides and national teams invariably symbolise the multicultural make up of their local and national populations, this has become almost natural is widely accepted and celebrated. But not by all as the awful comments by the right-wing German AfD party about 'not wanting him as a neighbour' about star of the Germany side, Jerome Boateng testify.
