    People have been suggesting that the Euros should not be in Poland and Ukraine but here's a though, at the moment, these countries rarely act on mass act of anti-semtism and racism as shown in several reports.

    however, wouldn't the international scrutiny be the catalyst for change, they will be forced to act for the euros and they could therefore continue their progress in later years.

    Not sure about racism but some radical Polish football fans are extremely dangerous. Football hooliganism is quite widespread in Poland, I recall reading an article about a Polish man being dragged out of his car at an intersection and subsequently stabbed to death by rival club fans, all in broad daylight.

    Would they allow this to happen during the Euros? i think not due to the international press and its could be the catalyst

    Yes, it is my understanding that this is one of UEFA's arguments to hold the tournament there. Sounds like a decent idea with that in mind tbh, but we'll see how it'll turn out in practice.

    the whole tournament will pass without incident, the press just love a story like this. The newspapers were full of South Africas problems and dangers before the World Cup and that passed by pretty quietly, that's not to say these issues don't need addressing.

    Hosting the Euros will help them to become less racist.

    Using it as a catalyst for change is much better than excluding them and letting the problem continue.

    The South Africans became more effective in dealing with problems , they had a major tournament coming and they stepped up to the occasion
