The fear of terrorism that prompted that postponement has permeated cities in several countries across Europe, following the attacks in Paris last week – one of which was outside the Stade de France as France played Germany – that claimed the lives of more than 100 people. Germany’s home match against the Netherlands was also called off on Tuesday evening after a bomb scare. Evidently people’s nervousness and unease are still high. There are also voices on social media who don’t consider it a coincidence that this has happened to a Belgian with an Indonesian father. Regardless of what this says about where society is going, the player himself is going back to the Italian capital for Roma’s Serie A match with Bologna this weekend.
