Racism laws in the UK may be tightened.

This came as a direct result of the incitement of the English players after the final defeat at the European Football Championship this summer, wrote NTB.

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel is fed up and wants to crack down on racism in sport.

– This summer we took a look at the beautiful game ravaged by the disgusting racism of online trolls. Behind the keyboard, they insult our football players. They must be punished. “The changes to the law that I am now presenting will ensure that they are prohibited from attending football matches,” said Patel.

He said stadium refusals could last up to ten years.

Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka all missed on penalties at Wembley. After this, they all received racist incitement and threats.

This fall, Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham were also exposed to racism in their World Cup qualifier against Hungary.

England lost in the European Cup final against Italy.
