A WISE old sage once quipped that football isn’t a matter of life and death,­ ­it’s much more important than that.

In this year of years we know that’s not true. The toughest battles have been fought not by those in Three Lions white but in green medical scrubs and blue nurses’ tunics.

Football is just a game but it’s our game.

And now it’s coming home, again.

A melodrama that has given us gilded ’66, Gazza’s Tears in ’90, ’96’s Dentist’s Chair and Pickford’s 2018 Shootout Save.

Now it’s our summer. 2021 is your turn to unite this rainbow nation of ours and write history.

Wear your shirts with pride. Each of you is already a winner.

Fewer than 1,300 men in history have ever won a cherished England cap.

There will be pitfalls along the way, but 56million of us are with you.

We’ll be there as you kick every ball. We’ll have your back when things go wrong.

In return you can give this football-mad nation hope, unity and, perhaps, some joy.

This is not the time for boos, only cheers.

Many years from now, let us look back fondly and say . . . 

Whatever 2021 threw at the world, that summer brought out the best in us.

UEFA didn't say what form of discrimination it was investigating or how it might have been expressed. It didn't set out a timeline for when the inspector would report back or when there might be a hearing.

The probe will focus on Hungary’s 3-0 loss to Portugal on Tuesday and its 1-1 draw with France on Saturday. Both matches were played at the Puskas Arena.
