Marc Cucurella responds after being relentlessly booed by fans in Spain's win over France

Marc Cucurella responds after being relentlessly booed by fans in Spain's win over France

Marc Cucurella has fired back after being booed throughout Spain's 2-1 semi-final win against France.

Spanish defender Marc Cucuerella has responded following being heavily booed throughout the entirety of Spain's semi-final victory over France.

Cucuerlla's side emerged victorious at the Allianz Arena and will play either England or Netherlands in Berlin on Sunday.

France took the lead through Randal Kolo Muani who nodded home Kylian Mbappe's cross, but Luis de la Fuente's side hit straight back with a quickfire double from Lamine Yamal and Dani Olmo to secure victory.

Throughout the entirety of the game, Cucurella's every touch was booed by the crowd despite the Chelsea fullback having no controversial history with the opposition.

It eventually was revealed the treatment was from German fans in the stadium, due to his alleged handball in Spain's quarter-final victory against the hosts.

The incident in the quarter-final was checked by VAR, but the Spaniard's arm was deemed to be by his side which was a decision that caused uproar with the German media.

Following the game, Cucurella hit back at those who booed him on Spanish radio station Cadena Cope.

"These are things that happen, I'm not to blame for anything, I don't know what they were trying to achieve with that, but that's the way it is," he explained.

"The most important thing is that we're in the final, and that's it.

Cucerlla was backed up by his international teammate Daniel Vivian, who also called out the fan's treatment after the game.

"No player deserves this, I think if you come onto a football pitch to boo someone, you have no respect for someone who is doing their job," Vivian said.

Cucurella has been one of Euro 2024's surprise packages, with many shocked to see him preferred over Bayer Leverkusen star Alex Grimaldo.

The Chelsea star's performances have certainly upped his stocks and could be a very useful asset for Enzo Maresca ahead of the new season.
