Abete dismayed by fans reaction

Italian Football Federation (FIGC) President Giancarlo Abete has apologised after Azzurri fans booed La Marseillaise anthem before Saturday's Euro 2008 qualifier against Group B rivals France.

Abete has published an open letter to French Football Federation (FFF) President Jean-Pierre Escalettes in which he criticises those Italian supporters.

"Italian football has nothing to do with the booing heard during the French national anthem before the game at Milan's San Siro," Abete said.

The encounter finished goalless, leaving the French as Group B leaders and Italy two points behind, but in third behind Scotland.
