The first openly gay footballer in Europe is to live tweet during tonight’s Euro 2012 clash between England and the Ukraine as part of a campaign to raise awareness of an anti-gay crackdown in the tournament co-hosts.

Marcus Urban played for German second division team Rot-Weiß Erfurt in the 1990s, but came out as gay man at a time when it was almost unheard of for a footballer.

Despite it being more accepted now to be a gay man, there are still no openly gay players in all the teams at Euro 2012, digitalspy.ie reports.
