On Thursday, the prosecutor of Bulgaria prosecuted an 18-year-old man for racist behavior during the much-discussed European Championship qualification match of Bulgaria on Monday in Sofia against England.

The game was interrupted several times due to racist behavior from the stands against black players on the English side. So-called monkey sounds were made and the Hitler salute could also be seen.

The man charged by the OM of Bulgaria is being held for 72 hours. A date has not yet been set for the trial, but it is expected that it will not be long.

Six other people were arrested earlier. Possibly more arrests will follow, because the Bulgarian police are still busy with watching the incidents during the match.

UEFA denounces both unions

UEFA already sued the Bulgarian Football Association on Tuesday. The fans would - in addition to racism and bringing the Nazi salute - have been guilty of throwing objects and disturbing the national anthem.

Incidentally, UEFA also sued the English Football Association. The accompanying supporters would have disrupted the national anthem of Bulgaria and the football association would have brought too few stewards to Sofia.

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov immediately called on President Borislav Michailov of the Bulgarian Football Association to step down on Monday and he did so one day later "due to the recent tensions".
