Former England international Sol Campbell is warning England fans not to travel to Euro 2012 because of the threat of racism and violence.
Campbell, the former Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur defender who played 73 times for England and appeared at six major tournaments, told the BBC's Panorama programme: "Stay at home, watch it on TV. Don't even risk it ... because you could end up coming back in a coffin."
Campbell's comments, widely reported on the front pages of several British newspapers on Monday, follow announcements from the families of two black England players who said they would not go to the championship.
The brother of midfielder Theo Walcott has tweeted that he and his father would not go because of "possible racist attacks" while the family of his Arsenal team mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have also shelved their plans to watch England. —Reuters
