England: Tammy Abraham reveals what he’ll do if racially abused by fans

England: Tammy Abraham reveals what he’ll do if racially abused by fans

Mihaylov called upon Uefa to sanction England if they went against its protocols and he did not hide his anger.

Chelsea youngster Mason Mount is likely to earn his first start for England tomorrow and manager Gareth Southgate said he's been an admirer since the midfielder was in the under-16 set up.

England are set to take on the Czech Republic on Friday and Bulgaria on Monday, with the match against the latter taking place in a partially-closed stadium - a legacy of racist chants made by Bulgarian fans during matches against the Czech Republic and Kosovo in June.

"We need to be professional athletes", said the Liverpool player.

"That has been relayed to Bulgaria in whatever way it has been relayed and the way it has been pitched could appear provocative, or that we are the people laying the subject on the table".

"If I was him, and I was only reading those quotes and not knowing the context of why the things were said and the responses were said, then I would feel probably as he does".

"We are not trying to create a situation, far from it".

Kent Police has confirmed they have sent a "small number of officers" to help with the operation, along with 42 other forces. It comes after police arrested 800 people in London in the first three days of the group's "international rebellion".

"He just briefed us about what was going to happen". "Just hopefully I can get many years experience under my belt for England". If it continues, the second stage is to halt the match for a reasonable amount of time and request teams go to the dressing room.

Southgate told media in September he would speak to the players about how they wished to handle any future incidents of abuse, while UEFA have their own three-step protocol to help deal with such incidents.

"I think we have to be very careful in how we cover everything".

"At this moment in time, full faith in UEFA".

'Harry is one the best strikers in the world and there are parts of his game I can add to mine'. "At the back of my head, I've always wanted to play for England".

"If it happens to one of us, it happens to all of us", Abraham said. Hopefully I'll get my chance and I'll take it.

England are now top of their qualifying group after picking up 12 points from their four matches, and two wins in the upcoming double-header of fixtures could be a huge step in the Three Lions' hopes of qualifying for next summer's tournament.
