Tensions between the EU and Hungary boiled over for two days on the pitch of the Germany-Hungary match, which took place last night in Munich. They will again be fully political from this Thursday.

Stadiums in Germany, monuments and sites in various European cities – including the Grand-Place in Brussels and the Federal Parliament in Belgium – reworked logos: on the occasion of the match between Germany and Hungary, the colors of the LGBTQI community were out Wednesday night. With the same message: to oppose a Hungarian law that discriminates against sexual minorities and at the same time denounce the apolitism of UEFA, which refused to allow the city of Munich to light up its stadium in protest colors of the rainbow. Long before the start of the meeting, all this caused, leaping from football to politics – sometimes with back and forth – a vast controversy that the absence of the Hungarian Prime Minister in the stands has further underscored … before a spectator with a rainbow flag appeared in turn on the lawn at the time of the Hungarian national anthem.
