Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jaden Sancho were considered to be the culprits for failing to win the championship after a penalty missed in the Euro 2020 final. Chief Police Officer Mark Roberts (Mark Roberts) said the discrimination was "extremely bad." "If we determine that you are behind this crime, we will track you down, and you will face the serious consequences of shameful behavior," he said. The police said that after England lost to Italy on a penalty kick in the Wembley final, "a lot of racist comments against some black players in the team" appeared on a social media platform. The British Football Police Department stated that they are dealing with "a large number of incidents of racist abuse." Cheshire Police recently arrested a middle-aged man from Runcorn for displaying threats, abusive or insulting written materials that may provoke racial hatred. The force stated that his arrest was part of a racist social media message posted after investigating the Euro 2020 final. The man has been released for investigation and is awaiting further investigation.
Chief Police Officer Mark Roberts of the National Police Commissioner’s Committee said that racial discrimination "is absolutely right to shock people across the country." "Our England team has always been a true role model during the game, acting with professionalism and dignity. I am disgusted that some people think that such abhorrent abuse is acceptable to them or anyone else." He said that the investigation will continue to work hard to find the perpetrators, and the police are working closely with social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
