Outrage over fans racist treatment towards England football players

Many people have expressed their concern over how fans have treated football players after England’s beat in the UEFA Euro 2020 final.

Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka were the players to receive racial abuse after the team lost to penalties against Italy at the Euro 2020 final.

The three players missed shots during the shoot-out, which resulted in them being victims of racial abuse by fans.

The racial abuse occurred on a variety of social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

Also, a mural of Marcus Rashford that which created for his continuous effort in helping children from low-income families receive free school meals was damaged.

England manager Gareth Southgate stated that the players brought “incredible togetherness and spirit” to the country, and the abuse they received was “unforgivable”.

“I know a lot of that has come from abroad but not all of it, and it is just not what we stand for”.

Furthermore, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson expressed his concern in a tweet that said that the players should be “lauded as heroes”, and the people who were racist should “be ashamed of themselves”.

 

In addition, the metropolitan police conveyed the matter to be unacceptable, foreshadowing an investigation of the matter.

 

In addition, ITV has reported that in 24 hours, over three quarters of a million people have petitioned for the people who were, are going to be racist at football games to serve a lifetime ban from football games.
