England captain, Harry Kane, has said his teammates Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka don’t deserve the racist abuse they suffered after the Three Lions lost the Euro 2020 final to Italy.
The game played at the Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday saw all three players lose their spot-kick.
Luke Shaw had gotten the opener in the second minute before Leonardo Bonucci equalised for Italy to send the game into extra time and penalties.

The penalty shoot-out ended 3-2 to see Italy crowned Euro 2020 champions.
Not pleased by the racial abuse against his teammates after the game, Kane took to Twitter to state that England don’t need fans who do such.
He wrote, “Three lads who were brilliant all summer had the courage to step up & take a pen when the stakes were high. 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.”
In another post, the Tottenham striker revealed how hurt he is by the loss. He, however, expressed the belief that England will do well in the World Cup next year.
He wrote, “Last night hurts. It’ll hurt for a long time. But we’ve come so far and broken down so many barriers that this is not the end. We win together, lose together and will regroup together for the World Cup. Thanks for all your support this summer.”
