The Netherlands said it does not allow non-essential visitors from the UK due to Covid concerns. Fans trying to get into the country have claimed the Dutch response has been unfair as other countries not on the Netherland’s green list have been allowed in.
Speaking on BBC Question Time, an enraged Welsh supporter said the situation was “hypocrisy”.
He said: “Welsh supporters have been turned away from Amsterdam airport.
“They can’t go and see the game in Amsterdam which is being played on Saturday night against Denmark.
“Denmark supporters can go, Welsh supporters can’t go because Holland have decided that due to the variant in the UK they do not want Welsh supporters travelling over there.
“It’s hypocrisy that UEFA can come here from any country in the world yet we can’t go as supporters to other parts of the world.”
The upcoming last-16 match comes after Wales reached the knockout stage of the Euro 2020 tournament despite losing 1-0 to Italy in Rome.
The team took second place in Group A, finishing above Switzerland on goal difference.
Football fans turned away at the airport added the situation was “worrying and not well communicated.”
