Tasteless poster behind Neuer – public prosecutor rejects investigation

Stand: 24.06.2021

Shaking game against Hungary – Germany’s rescue in the video

With a lot of dizziness and thanks to three substitutes, Germany made it to the round of 16 against Hungary. Until shortly before the end there was little to speak for the national team – until Goretzka redeemed Germany. All the highlights in the video.

During the duel between Germany and Hungary, a supporter from the guest block attracts attention with an anti-gay poster. Although the perpetrator is quickly identified, he is unlikely to face any sanctions.

Sa goal was important. And his jubilation is a great statement. Leon Goretzka, 26, celebrated the 2: 2 with fingers shaped like a heart – right in front of the Hungarian block and within spitting distance of the black-clad neo-Nazi mob.

A clear answer from the national player to the previously disgusting provocations. First, the black-clad chaos rioted and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer mobbed. An anti-gay poster later surfaced. The perpetrator was quickly identified by the Uefa control center. But the slob hid the poster under his jacket and later in his hood.

The public prosecutor’s office has so far rejected investigations because of “minor facts”. Therefore, Uefa will probably not take any legal action either.

“A strong sign”

The Lesbian and Gay Association (LSVD) has meanwhile praised Goretzka’s heartfelt jubilation. “That was an absolutely strong and correct sign,” said Axel Hochrein, member of the LSVD federal board, on Thursday.

It was a “moving signal”, said Hochrein, who himself was in the EM stadium in Munich. “In the goal celebration and all the excitement, someone found the right signal, namely: love is always above hate.”

The gesture on the field was not enough for Goretzka: After the game, the 26-year-old midfielder of the record champions FC Bayern Munich tweeted the cheering photo with the words “Spread Love” and rainbow flag emoji.
