Soccer players in danger from Chernobyl fallout

The effects of the nuclear meltdown in Russia at Chernobyl will continue to be felt for two hundred years at least.

Despite a most heroic effort by the Russian military and local people the threat is still there for the world to discover over a period of time.

Why am I bringing the past to your attention now?

Try and make a note in your diaries of all the players names who were in games for the EUFA cup finals.

They are playing in an area devastated by fallout just a few years ago. Test how many of them could be subjected to health risks in the coming years.

Should we have sent the teams to play in these countries?

Time will tell.
