Antiracism body says England game should have been abandoned
Kick It Out chides Uefa for failing to abandon Monday’s Euro 2020 qualifier in Bulgaria
London — Antiracism organisation Kick It Out has criticised European football’s governing body, Uefa, for failing to abandon Monday’s Euro 2020 qualifier in Bulgaria after England’s black players were subjected to monkey chants.
The game was twice halted in the first half, first when England manager Gareth Southgate informed the Uefa delegate about incidents and a public announcement was made. The abuse continued and the Group A match, which England went on to win 6-0, was again suspended by the referee under a three-step Uefa protocol for tackling abuse.
