England captain, Harry Kane has thrown his support around the black players on the England national team amidst racist attacks. England lost to Italy in a penalty shootout and fans are blaming 3 black player for it. The attacks was senseless, vicious, and disappointing.
They have flooded Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho’s social media page with hate speeches, treats and racist abuses.
The England captain said this about the racist English fans. ” Three lads who were brilliant all summer and who had the courage to step up and take a penalty when the stakes were high. They deserve our support and backing not the vile racist abuse they’ve had since last night. If you’re abusing anyone on social media you’re not an England fan and we don’t want you.”
Harry Kane is not the only one defending these 3 black men, the England national team has also come forward to show support and a lot of footballers and fans are also showing support.
