Не си спомням някога да съм се срамувал от родината си. Днес се срамувам.

Споделям това, защото споделям гнева и отвращението. България все повече се превръща в държава, безсилна да се справи със собствените си демони. Поощрявана открито от хора във властта, расовата и етническа омраза постепенно прониква във всяко ъгълче на страна, която до неотдавна беше на думи и на дела една от най-толерантните в Европа.

Не си спомням някога да съм се срамувал от родината си.

Днес се срамувам.

“We came expecting a football match. What we got was a miserable occasion on a miserable night in a miserable stadium against miserable opposition played out to a miserable backdrop of recrimination and bad blood.

By the end this did not feel like a sporting event at all. It felt like an open sore, an affront to the basic idea of nations coming together to exchange flags, in a stadium transformed into a well of poison.

These Bulgarians were not having a moment or allowing their usual high standards to slip. They were gleefully taking the opportunity to abuse black footballers and to demonstrate in some cases that they are fascists.

For now, no other European nation should be asked to play in Sofia. Lock the gates. Let the plastic seating moulder, the concrete crack.”
