England players hit with racist abuse

England was left devastated at the Euro Cup 2020 final after losing to Italy on penalties with irate fans leaving racist abuse on the social media profiles of the players who failed to score.

Disappointed fans have left a slew of abuse on the black players of the team both online and off as a Manchester mural of Marcus Rashford was defaced with slurs.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson and England manager Gareth Southland have both condemned the abuse with Mr Southgate saying said the racism was “not what we stand for”.

“For them to be abused is unforgivable really, it’s just not what we stand for, we, I think, have been a beacon of light in bringing people together, in people being able to relate to the national team,” Mr Southgate said.
