Earlier, London police said they would be investigating ‘a number of offensive’ social media comments targeting some of the footballers following the defeat of England’s national team in the Euro 2020 final against Italy at Wembley on Sunday night.
The Football Association (FA) has issued a statement strongly condemning racist abuse online aimed at some of the players of England’s national football team after its Euro 2020 loss in the Sunday final.
Responding to the targeting of Black England players Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho,– all of whom had their spot-kicks deflected by Italy’s keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, the governing body of association football in England issued a statement on Monday morning that read:
‘The FA strongly condemns all forms of discrimination and is appalled by the online racism that has been aimed at some of our England players on social media. We could not be clearer that anyone behind such disgusting behaviour is not welcome in following the team. We will do all we can to support the players affected while urging the toughest punishments possible for anyone responsible.’
Black players Marcus Rashford, forward for Manchester United, Jadon Sancho, also signed for the club, and Bukayo Saka, Arsenal, all failed to score their penalty shots and prompted a torrent of online discriminatory abuse.
The FA statement vowed that it would ‘continue to do everything we can to stamp discrimination out of the game, but we implore government to act quickly and bring in the appropriate legislation so this abuse has real-life consequences.’
The FA also urged the social media companies to take action to identify and ‘ban abusers’ from their platforms. The official Twitter account of the English team put out a statement to voice its ‘disgust’ over the comments directed at footballers, condemning the behaviour as ‘unacceptable’.
Earlier, London police acknowledged they were aware of ‘a number of offensive and racist social media comments being directed towards footballers’ following England’s defeat, and promised a thorough investigation.
Following the bitter loss of England’s team, at least 49 arrests were made in the city, with 19 officers injured while confronting aggressive fans, some of whom were seen burning firecrackers and overturning dumpsters in London. Source 1, Source 2.
