Racism, xenophobia and anti-semitism have returned to the streets of Europe with a vengeance. Tolerance is in short supply. In times like this, we look for havens that provide shelter from the hate and intolerance, havens that provide opportunity. Football, as the great sporting and social leveler, should be that safe haven.
