England captain Harry Kane defends his teammates against online abusers.

Following

England’s

defeat in the Euro 2020 final,

Bukayo Saka

,

Marcus Rashford

, and

Jadon Sancho

have been receiving online abuse, and England captain

Harry Kane

has defended his teammates against the online abusers insisting that no one needs the fans who racially abuse people on social media.

"Three lads who were brilliant all summer had the courage to step up & take a pen when the stakes were high,"

he wrote on Twitter

.

"They deserve support & backing not the vile racist abuse they've had since last night.

"If you abuse anyone on social media you're not an @England fan and we don't want you."

England fans were very disappointed by their side’s defeat in the final match against Italy in the penalty shootouts, and some of these fans used insulted the players who missed their penalties. Rashford, Sancho, and Saka were the main players to receive racial abuse on social media because of missing their penalties, although all the team and the pundits backed these young players insisting that they have nothing to prove considering their quality at such a young age and Jude Bellingham has claimed that although these abusive contents are hurtful, they are not surprising.

The Three Lions’ last major success was in 1966 when they won the World Cup, and they were hoping to end this long wait for glory in their homeland, but Roberto Mancini’s men kept them from achieving their long-waited dream.
