Insulting and even threatening three black players from their national team Who, according to them, will be responsible for the defeat against Italy during Sunday’s match.
“What we are doing is taking practical steps to make sure the stadium suspension rules are changed so that it is done Anyone guilty of writing racist comments online can no longer go to the stadium. No condition, no exceptions, no exceptions, no excuses.” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.
Then one of the three UK players who fell victim to racial insults commented: “I won’t pretend I didn’t see any kind of racial abuse targeting me or my brothers Marcus and Bukayo (note: I’m Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka, the other two players) during the match, but Unfortunately nothing new.“
The measure is also aimed at ensuring that pathetic scenes such as scenes of attacks on fans or whistles against football players on Sunday night are not repeated. As a result, 26 were arrested in Wembley, and 25 others in central London, indicating that the police and government are already trying to stamp out the phenomenon in the UK.
