Racist insults on social media against the three black players of the English national team who missed their penalties in the final against Italy, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka. Episode condemned by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. “This England national team deserves to be praised as a heroine, not to be the subject of racial slurs on social media. Those responsible for these horrific insults should be ashamed,” he tweeted expressing solidarity with the insulted English players of color. Even the English Football Federation said it was “disgusted to see that members of our team, who gave everything, were subjected to discriminatory aggression on the web after last night’s match”. “The players have our support”, wrote the Fa on its twitter account. In a statement, the Federation then reiterated “the condemnation of all forms of discrimination” and said it was “concerned about the widespread racism on social networks against some English players: we say in the clearest way that whoever is behind these repugnant behaviors is not welcome among the fans of this team. “
