Euro Diary 2012: Farewell Danny; Poles pilloried
Danny Fullbrook, chief football writer of the Daily Star, lost his long battle with cancer yesterday, at the age of 40. The news reached reporters covering the England team as they travelled to Donetsk.
Danny had been part of that press pack for most of his professional life and one of his close friends, Shaun Custis, chief football writer of The Sun, made a moving speech on the flight.
Poland's press are still fuming at the co-hosts' early elimination from Group A, and following coach Franciszek Smuda's resignation on Sunday, they want the Football Federation's president Grzegorz Lato to follow suit.
A piece in tabloid newspaper Fakt said: "Lato, grab Smuda and be off with you both!" which is also the stance taken by the Polish sports minister, Joanna Mucha.
