England captain Harry Kane has slammed those on social media who have been behind the vile racist abuse of team-mates Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka: “You’re not an England fan and we don’t want you.”
On a night of high drama at Wembly, the 3 young players bravely stepped up to take a spot kick against arguably the worlds best Goalkeeping in Gianluigi Donnarumma. All three players missed their penalties in the 3-2 shootout loss to Italy in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final.
They were targeted on social media after the game, as angry fans failed to show more substance than the excrement from our canine friends, and instead hid behind their pseudo identities on social media.
“They deserve support and backing, not the vile racist abuse they’ve had since last night,” Kane said.
“Three lads who were brilliant all summer had the courage to step up and take a pen when the stakes were high,” the Tottenham striker added on Twitter.
“If you abuse anyone on social media you’re not an England fan and we don’t want you.”

Poch & Pogba To Swap As Zidane Waits To Take Reins At PSG
Mauricio Pochettino is looking ever more likely to become the next Manager of Manchester Utd after he requested emergency talks with the PSG board. The Argentinian replaced Thomas Tuchel at the helm in January of this year but it has been a tumultuous time to say the least. PSG only managed a second place finish in Ligue 1 last term but Poch signed a two year deal in July as the board put their faith in him.
He has recently been quoted as saying he would love to return to work in England as his family has remained in London.
The PSG board are willing to let Poch go but are extremely keen in having Paul Pogba as part of any deal. This is a request from the supposed replacement of Poch, Zinedine Zidane as he looks to make an immediate impact in Parc De Princes.
Zidane himself has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid in May of this year.
Manchester Utd are reportedly also keen in Brendan Rodgers and Erik Ten Hag but remain steadfast in their quest with Pochettino.
