FA Condemns Scenes Of Racism and Violence After England u-21 Match In Serbia [VIDEO]

Ugly scenes occurred at the end of England’s victory against Serbia in an under-21 match today.

As England scored the winning goal with the last kick of the game, England footballers were on the receiving end of missiles thrown by the crowd. Plus, England midfielder Danny Rose inferred that he was a victim of racial abuse.

The chaos kicked off as England footballers and officials tried to leave the field. Rose received a second yellow card and was sent off for kicking a ball away in anger. And then Serbian players seemed to confront England officials.

“The FA condemns both the scenes of racism and the confrontation at the final whistle during which time our players and staff were under extreme provocation,” said an official FA statement. “The FA has reported a number of incidents of racism to UEFA following the fixture. These were seemingly aimed at a number of England’s black players by the crowd. The matter is now with UEFA.”

According to England u-21 manager Stuart Pearce, “Savo Milosevic, their technical director, has come to our dressing room to apologise for any behaviour that was unsavoury. I never like to see any football matches end like that. This is a sporting arena.”
