It Took Negative One Day For Euro 2012 Fans To Start Their Racist Chants

The tourney doesn't start until tomorrow; today was merely a practice for the Netherlands. A practice open to the public. The Dutch team began the practice session by jogging around a track in Krakow, and when they reached one end of the circuit, "several hundred" or around "500" fans began hooting monkey chants at Nigel de Jong and Gregory van der Wiel.

The best part? UEFA has already denied that the abuse was racially motivated.
