The tweets could have come from anywhere, not only England. And, for that matter, more than a few seemed to be of Chinese, Hispanic, and Eastern European origin.

No surprise this sick racism is on display when filthy bigots freely chant despicable and hateful songs about their rivals, as well as disgracefully booing their anthem. It is NOT OK to do these things, it is NOT OK to call the black players "monkeys" or upload banana images, simply because they missed penalty kicks.

Many of the tweets come from outside the UK, and have names like "Mohammed" and "Chen". They are often from the Middle East, Pakistan, India, China and SIngapore.

Sounds like you made that all up.

Some of these sick racists - yes - ENGLISH - are already getting life bans from their clubs. Fact.

Furthermore, you do realize that the name "Mohammed" is among the top few British boys names, and has been for quite some time. Right?

Kick racism out!

However pathetic and stupid these people are, they are a tiny handful of the broader population, certainly in most Western countries.

Unfortunately it seems the English supporters are already blaming the Chinese and others for the racist tweets. Nothing can be solved until the people admit there is something wrong with their own country.

I feel the word "vow" has completely lost its meaning in modern English. I've lost counts on these social media "vow" yet nothing ever has changed

The Italian goalkeeper should also be cancelled. Blocking all three Black penalty shots with such cruel white efficiency? Did you see the deranged way the goalkeeper, and the rest of the team, celebrated white dominance over Black penalty kickers? It's shameful that UEFA allowed the most blatant display of racial hostility since the George Floyd murder. Everyone knows that since Blacks are poor, they do not have enough space to practice penalties. And so some rule changes are in order. The spot should only be 8 yards for Black shooters, the goalkeeper must not move from his spot, and if the Black penalty kicker still misses under these conditions, no celebrations will be allowed and instead everyone immediately takes a knee to combat the systemic racism that caused the Black player to miss.

Fines of up to 10 percent of global revenue? I like this very much! And if every country does the same, they will go out of business in no time!

That's why England still deserves to be knelt on the field - they still have issues that they need to face head-on

People want to try to hide it, but during times of adversity, the character shows it's still there in some fans

Maybe the English team can't actually win a big tournament precisely because they know they have too many racist fans.
