Euro 2024: the man armed with a pickaxe on the sidelines of Netherlands-Poland announced his attack on social networks

IIt was shortly before 12:30 p.m. this Sunday when a man, who was leaving a bar, appeared with a pickaxe and a Molotov cocktail in the city of Hamburg, just before the match between the Netherlands and Poland. According to the daily Bild, the police first tried to arrest the individual by using tear gas then by firing a warning shot with a gun. Several shots were then fired, causing the assailant to fall. The attacker was shot in the leg

Currently his phone is still under investigation, but police say it was not aimed at football fans. The Bild newspaper believes the man has mental problems and suffers from schizophrenia. He is said to have already been admitted to the Lüneburg psychiatric clinic several times, but was released each time

Yesterday morning, before his attack, André G. reportedly from Buchholz in der Nordheide, in the German state of Lower Saxony, posted a reel on Facebook, showing the pickaxe and the incendiary bomb. “The public is invited to go to Heiligengeistfeld (Editor’s note: name of a district of Hamburg close to where he later found himself). Project to load truck postponed,” which could indicate he had even more planned.

Yesterday morning he also published a prediction for the European Championship match in Hamburg. He predicted that Poland would win 3-1 against the Netherlands. The match ended in a victory for the Netherlands.
