England vs Bulgaria result overshadowed by racist abuse, Report

Play was stopped twice in England’s 6-0 win, as fans in Bulgaria engaged in racist chants and made Nazi salutes.

England’s Football Association tweeted after the match that English players had been “subjected to abhorrent racist chanting” and that it would ask the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) to “investigate as a matter of urgency.”

“This is unacceptable at any level of the game and our immediate focus is supporting the players and staff involved,” the association tweeted.

“As we are sadly aware, this is not the first time our players have been subjected to this level of abuse and there is no place for this kind of behavior in society, let alone in football.”
