Football fans have power to influence nation's political course - hooligan turned author RT — SophieCo

Euro 2016 is drawing to a close. One of the most important football events, it was marred by widely reported fighting between the fans of rival national teams and brawls with the police.

Best-selling author and the screenwriter of the award-winning feature, ‘Green Street’ - Dougie Brimson is on Sophie&Co today.
