The shocking untold story of the 2006 World Cup – the mindless violence, the racism, the unseen riots and the running battles in German cities as the police tried to protect the hundreds of thousands of genuine fans who were attending the sporting extravaganza. Undercover cameras reveal the ugly face of the beautiful game and hundreds of yobs sing, swear and scrap their way across Germany.
Racism in association football (known in the US as soccer) is the abuse of players, officials and fans because of their skin colour, nationality, religion or ethnicity. Some may be targeted (also) because of their association with an opposing team. However, there have been instances of individuals being targeted by their own fans.
