While the Euros roll on through the knockout rounds, we have plenty of wild fan interactions already. From fans showing up to support their team in the wrong country to pitch invaders wielding rainbow flags, anything goes as fans are enjoying their time back. Football fans were kept from stadiums and fully supporting their teams for over a year by the Covid-19 pandemic, diminished to yelling at screens instead of faces, so we wouldn't expect anything less extravagant than what has been happening. Let's take a look at the best Euro 2020 fans so far. 

Bale Nopes Out Of Postgame Interview After Wales’ Crushing Defeat

AMSTERDAM — Wales captain Gareth Bale cut short a post-match interview when asked about his future in international football after his country's crushing 4-0 loss to Denmark in the last 16 of the European Championship on Saturday.

Manager Robert Page later labelled the question insensitive and said 31-year-old Bale had done the right thing to walk away from the pitchside interview.

Como Medusa: Dinamarca Convirtió En Piedra A Gales Y Está En Los Cuartos De Final De La Euro

Kasper Dolberg marcó un doblete ante Gales y cada vez que celebró su pelo se suspendió en el aire, en una forma que recuerda el mito griego de Medusa y sus serpientes, las que convertían en piedra a todos quienes la miraran.

Italy Completes Perfect Group Stage With Another Impressive Lockdown Performance

For the first time in European Championship history, a nation has won all three of its group stage matches without conceding a goal. Italy defeated Wales 1-0 on Sunday to finish top of Group A and book a Round of 16 trip to Wembley Stadium, where they’ll likely meet either Ukraine or Austria.

Italy manager Roberto Mancini made eight changes to the side that hammered Switzerland on Wednesday, but the Azzurri looked no different in how they went about dominating the opposition.
