England internationals Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham have been the target of racist slurs from the Hungarian public. Harry Kane has also been taken to task.
While Hungary was sentenced to 3 matches behind closed doors by UEFA, for racist and homophobic insults uttered by spectators in the Puskas Arena during the Euro, these same “ultras” slipped again when England on Thursday in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Racist chants have been launched against Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham. Boris Johnson having even banged his fist on the table, Fifa opened an investigation into these incidents on Friday. After the match, people also used anti-Semitic slurs against Harry Kane, as reported by ITV presenter Mark Pougatch. The striker and captain of the Three Lions had just demanded, in front of the camera, strong actions from the authorities against this kind of scandalous behavior in the stands.
