England Run Riot Amidst Racist Chants – Bulgaria 0-6 England | UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifiers

England rout Bulgaria in Sofia but Euro 2020 qualifier overshadowed by racist abuse of England’s players.

England’s Euro 2020 qualifier in Bulgaria was halted twice as fans were warned about racist behaviour.  This included Nazi salutes and monkey chanting.

The first pause came in the 28th minute with England leading 2-0.

A stadium announcement then condemned the abuse before stating the match would be abandoned if it continued.

However, the game was stopped again in the 43rd minute before restarting after discussions between the referee and England manager Gareth Southgate.

England went on to win 6-0 in Sofia to strengthen their place at the top of Group A.

Football Association chairman Greg Clarke was at the game and witnessed the abuse first hand.  He said it had left a number of the England players and staff visibly upset.

What is your reaction? Should the FA do more about this kind of behaviour?  How can the football fans be stopped?
