Four persons have been arrested over the racial abuse aimed at three England players – Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho – following the Three Lions’ Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy last Sunday.

Rashford, Saka, and Sancho, who came on as substitutes during England’s defeat to Italy, lost their spot-kicks against Italy at Wembley Stadium.

Italy defeated England 3-2 on penalties after the game ended 1-1 after 120 minutes.

Shortly after the game, Rashford, Saka, and Sancho were racially targeted on social media.

However, in a statement issued to the PA news agency, The UK Football Policing Unit (UKFPU) said: “Following England’s defeat against Italy on Sunday a torrent of racist comments aimed at some of the team’s black players appeared on platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

“A hate crime investigation is underway by the UKFPU, with a dedicated team of investigators working their way through a large number of reports from across the country.

“So far, dozens of data applications have been submitted to social media companies and four people have been arrested by local police forces.”
