Throughout Euro 2020, we’ll be hosting short online conversations about one of the day’s (or the previous day’s, or the next day’s) matches, at 1 p.m.: a bit of history, geopolitics, literature, but mostly just football.
On the day after the tournament’s first weekend, Sunder Katwala, director of British Future – which has just published research into the role football can play in creating an inclusive English identity – will discuss England v. Croatia, taking the knee, and Euro 2020’s opening matches with the New Socialist’s Jude Wanga, who writes about football and politics for the LRB blog.
