I only saw England do it and it was just for the first week back. This past weekend, the players names were back on the uniforms.

That would be interesting. I can’t imagine that but it’d be interesting.

Could be. It was a game last week. I don't care for Euro soccer & had it on for all of a minute

Europe? How many Blacks does Europe have? How many Black soccer players?

There are a ton of black soccer players in Europe, most either born in Africa or second generation African. Racism has been a major problem at soccer stadiums for decades.

Italy, Spain and the Eastern Euro countries have huge issues with racism.
