England’s Soccer Affiliation stated it was once “appalled” and “disgusted” after racist trolls focused Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka following Sunday’s Euro 2020 ultimate defeat to Italy.
All 3 gamers overlooked from the spot as Italy clinched the penalty shootout 3-2 after the worrying ultimate completed at 1-1 after overtime.
“We are disgusted that a few of our squad — who’ve given the entirety for the blouse this summer time — were subjected to discriminatory abuse on-line after this night’s recreation,” the England FA tweeted.
“We stand with our gamers.”
A separate commentary stated: “The FA strongly condemns all types of discrimination and is appalled by means of the net racism that has been aimed toward a few of our England gamers on social media.
“Shall we no longer be clearer that anybody in the back of such disgusting behaviour isn’t welcome in following the staff.”
London’s Metropolitan Police stated it was once investigating the “offensive and racist” posts.
“We’re acutely aware of a variety of offensive and racist social media feedback being directed against footballers following the #Euro2020 ultimate,” it stated in a tweet.
“This abuse is completely unacceptable, it is going to no longer be tolerated and it is going to be investigated.”
England’s gamers have made a robust stand in opposition to racism on the match, taking a knee earlier than their video games together with Sunday’s ultimate.
