Warsaw: Euro 2012 organisers have invited former England football captain Sol Campbell to come to the tournament, after he warned fans to stay away due to fears of racist attacks and violence in co-hosts Poland and Ukraine.
"Dear Sol, feel invited -- feel like at home. In Poland, at our common Euro 2012. Get to know us as we really are," organisers PL.2012 said in statement on Tuesday.
On Monday, the former Tottenham Hotspur and England defender told a BBC television programme that fans should not go to the Euro 2012 amid fears about far-right gangs that have prompted the families of two black England footballers to stay away.
