LYON, France (AP) — Another Northern Ireland fan has died at the European Championship.
Northern Ireland spokesman Neil Brittain says a fan died Thursday at Stade de Lyon after the team’s 2-0 win over Ukraine.
He gave no more details, saying the team would be issuing a statement with more information.
This is the second Northern Ireland fan to die during the tournament. On Sunday, 24-year-old Darren Rodgers died after a fall in Nice, following Northern Ireland’s loss to Poland.
Northern Ireland’s players wore black armbands and its fans dedicated a round of applause to pay their respects to Rodgers in Thursday’s match against Ukraine.
Neither death appears to be related to the hooligan violence at the tournament.
