England beat Bulgaria 6-0 on Monday evening, but despite the great result for the Three Lions you’d be hard pushed to find a happy face after the match.
There were some disgusting scenes in Sofia during the game, as a number of England players were racially abused by the home fans.

Luckily, the victims of the abuse weren’t willing to let this lie, and Trent Alexander-Arnold took to Twitter to fire back at the opposition manager.
Is this guy for real? The way the team stuck together last night was unreal but we can’t ignore what happened. The racism has gotta stop. https://t.co/9HMTgG5wrp

The right-back’s tweet perfectly encapsulates how everyone felt after hearing Krasimir Balakov’s comments.
The fact that he has come out and said that he didn’t hear any of the chanting is ridiculous, and these sorts of issue won’t be solved until high-profile figures such as managers begin holding the fans to account, rather than sweeping it under the rug.
Fortunately, there are others who are more willing to punish those responsible, as the country’s Prime Minister has called for the head of their FA to resign.
