Wales winger Rabbi Matondo has hit back at Instagram after he and his fellow teammate Ben Cabango were racially abused after their 1-0 win over Mexico.

The

Stoke City

by

FC Schalke 04

, has bitter criticism of the Instagram social network.

Matondo wrote on Twitter

: “And it continues… another week of Instagram doing absolutely nothing about racial abuse.

“My insta will get taken down if I post any clips from my games though…priorities”

The duo are the latest football players who have received racial abuse via social media in recent weeks.

Manchester United

Anthony Martial

,

Marcus Rashford

, and their team-mates

Fred

and

Alex Tuanzebe

are among those to have suffered such abuse.

Fred said last week

"we cannot feed that culture"

of racism after he was subjected to racial abuse after his side's FA Cup quarter-final defeat by

Leicester

.

At the time a spokesperson for Facebook, which also owns Instagram, said the company

“will continue to work with the police and wider industry to collectively tackle this issue”.
