In Polish social networks, a discussion has flared up on the topic of how the Polish national football team should start today’s match with England at Wembley Stadium.
Tonight, March 31, Poland will face England for the World Cup qualifier. In social networks, a discussion has flared up about whether Polish footballers will kneel on the field in support of the scandalous Black Lives Matter movement. The president of the Polish Football Association Zbigniew Boniek said that a decision on this issue has not yet been made, but did not rule out such a step, despite criticism from social networks that Poland was not a colonial country, so the Poles “have nothing to apologize for.”
In turn, the well-known Polish journalist Wojciech Wybranowski came up with an idea to support the Polish national minority in Belarus, which is currently “being repressed by the Lukashenka regime.”
“Instead of ‘kneeling’, one should go out onto the field with photographs (posters, cardboard boxes) of Andrzej Poczobut, Angelica Boris, and other Poles persecuted in Belarus,” Vybranovsky wrote in his microblog.
The initiative of the journalist was met by Internet users with a bang. Whether the Polish sports functionaries will meet halfway, we will be convinced tonight at 21.45 Moscow time.
TOPNEWS recalls that on the eve of the Seimas of the Republic of Poland expressed its disagreement with the “brutal repressive campaign unleashed by the Belarusian authorities” against the Polish minority.
