A fundraiser to compensate for the "German Crying Girl" scandal


A fundraiser to compensate for the "German Crying Girl" scandal

Press reports revealed that more than 24,000 pounds ($33,000) were collected for the young girl who collapsed in tears after her German team lost against England in the European Cup.

In the final minutes of the match, in which the German national team was eliminated from the final price after losing 2-0 to England at Wembley last week, the director responsible for broadcasting the match showed on the scoreboard the scene of the young German cheerleader crying in agony at the loss of her country in the arms of her her father, which was met with mocking shouts from the English public.

And the "give me sport" website reported that what happened in that match, prompted someone to create a fundraising campaign for the girl who was crying, to prove that "not everyone in the UK is bad".

Joel Hughes, a Wales football fan who works as a website developer, initially set a target of raising £500 for the German girl.

Reports indicated that the amount raised far exceeded the limit set by Hughes, as 2,300 people participated in the fundraiser, and more than 24,000 pounds were raised as of Saturday morning.

Many of the pioneers of English social networking sites interacted and hoped that the initiative would be a kind of compensation and apology for what was done by some of the abusive masses that affected the young girl with sarcastic comments, which reached the point of describing her as a Nazi.

England got rid of its German knot and skipped a knockout round in the tournament for only the second time since the 1996 quarter-finals, when it beat Spain on penalties.

It is noteworthy that the England national team will face Denmark in the semi-finals of the continental championship at Wembley Stadium in the British capital, London, on the 7th of July.
