CRYSTAL PALACE: England fan awaits World Cup trespass hearing
10:49am Friday 25th June 2010 in Sport
A SUPPORTER accused of trespassing after he entered England's dressing room must wait until next week at the earliest to hear his fate.
Pavlos Joseph, 32, from Crystal Palace, appeared at a special World Cup court in Cape Town on Friday where his case was adjourned until Wednesday.
His solicitor Craig Webster requested the adjournment because his defence team is still awaiting CCTV footage from the stadium on the night of England's 0-0 draw against Algeria.
At a previous hearing, Joseph was banned from attending any more World Cup matches, his passport was seized and he was released on 500 rand (£44) bail.
Joseph was arrested after the incident at the Green Point stadium in Cape Town.
He said later he was looking for a toilet after the match when a security guard sent him in the direction of the players' tunnel.
After taking a wrong turn, he found himself in the changing room where he says he told David Beckham: "David, we've spent a lot of money getting here. This is a disgrace. What are you going to do about it?"
A spokeswoman for the UK policing team in South Africa has said a football banning order would not be pursued because the incident was not linked to violent behaviour.
