The Euro Championship has not gone to England. After two hours of close-knit football in a 1-1 draw, England and Italy were placed in gifts. Italy won after Marcus Rashford touched one out of place, Jadon Sancho’s test was stopped, and the final test, done by 19-year-old Bukayo Saka, was saved by the keeper. Saka fell into tears, Italy rejoiced and the Euros were over.
“It’s Coming Home,” the smash hit English pop song released in 1996 by English comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner with rock band Lightning seeds, will be re-enacted until England for the 2022 World Cup, where the nation and its supporters will dust it off once again to try to win its first international trophy since 1966. The national battle cry of support and love for its team has been replaced by hatred and hatred. condemned and vile racism and racism for the three young black Englishmen.
Rashford, who was previously the target of racial abuse by football fans, was a spearhead in the British government’s pressure to provide free school meals to children from low-income families during the COVID pandemic.
In a statement from The Football Association, Governing body of English Football, they have made their position very clear.
“We can’t be clearer that anyone behind such disgusting behavior is not welcome to follow the team,” the statement said.
“Social media companies need to step up and take responsibility and take action to ban abusers from their platforms, gather evidence that can lead to persecution and support the release of their platforms from this type of abusive abuse.”
This is, unfortunately, nothing new. Many, including the FA and Prince William, who is the president of the FA, have called for social media platforms to act more quickly and vigorously to prevent this type of hatred from happening, and also for the law enforcement passed on.
“Racist abuse – whether on the ground, in the stands, or on social media – is despicable and must stop now. We all have a responsibility to create an environment where such abuses are not tolerated, and those who choose to spreading hatred and division are bound to be held accountable for their actions.This responsibility extends to platforms where so much activity is now taking place.Congratulations to all those players, supporters, clubs and organizations who continue to call and condemn this abuse in the stronger terms, ”Prince William said posted on Twitter of January.
He echoed the same feelings come back this morning.
The harsh and incomprehensible reality for these players is that when you win, you are English, but when you lose, you are black. It’s annoying and that’s the same reason why the English team kneels on the field before every game in the entire tournament.
These three young men were tall and had a massive time for their country. They are short falls. It happens. Turn against them and dismiss racist comments because the result did not go your way is unforgivable. All persons who may be identified by the application of the law as having been committed in such disgusting acts shall be held liable to the fullest extent. This is about to end.
