There’s been a frontlash by responsible authorities in England after the failure of their hopes to call for more immigration based on England’s heavily black soccer team winning the big game:
FA condemns racist abuse of England players on social media after Euro final
Metropolitan Police open investigation into abusive comments
Sun 11 Jul 2021 20.56 EDT
The Football Association has issued a statement condemning racist abuse on social media directed at a number of England players after their defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final. The Metropolitan police have also opened an investigation into the abuse.
“The FA strongly condemns all forms of discrimination and is appalled by the online racism that has been aimed at some of our England players on social media,” the statement said early on Monday morning.
“We could not be clearer that anyone behind such disgusting behaviour is not welcome in following the team. We will do all we can to support the players affected while urging the toughest punishments possible for anyone responsible.”
A Metropolitan police tweet said: “We are aware of a number of offensive and racist social media comments being directed towards footballers following the #Euro2020 final. This abuse is totally unacceptable, it will not be tolerated and it will be investigated.”
England lost 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Wembley. Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka failed to score their spot-kicks in the shootout and all three players have been targeted by racist abuse. … The FA statement said it would “continue to do everything we can to stamp discrimination out of the game, but we implore government to act quickly and bring in the appropriate legislation so this abuse has real life consequences.
“Social media companies need to step up and take accountability and action to ban abusers from their platforms, gather evidence that can lead to prosecution and support making their platforms free from this type of abhorrent abuse.”
A number of high-profile Twitter users gave the players their support after the game, while Instagram has been flooded with positive comments in an effort to drown out the racist abuse. “All the boys who put themselves forward to take a pen we are proud of you – takes a form of bravery to step up in such pressurised situations. @BukayoSaka87 @Sanchooo10 @MarcusRashford we salute you boys,” wrote the former England international Rio Ferdinand.
“The racist abuse I’ve seen targeted at these incredibly talented young players who helped take us to our first major tournament final in 55 years has been vile and disgusting,” wrote Magid Magid, the former lord mayor of Sheffield. “England wouldn’t have achieved what it did without them. They deserve all our love and support!”
We’re disgusted that some of our squad – who have given everything for the shirt this summer – have been subjected to discriminatory abuse online after tonight’s game.
We stand with our players ❤️ https://t.co/1Ce48XRHEl

In this universe: “England Needs More Diversity and Immigration to Crush Racism Revealed in Loss to Italy.”
Apparently, in the big European soccer championship game today, the score was tied 1-1 so each team picked 5 players to take penalty kicks from 12 meters against the goalie. The Italian coach picked five white guys and they made 3 out of 5. The English coach first sent out two white guys who both scored.
Then he took out two whites and sent in blacks cold off the bench. They both failed.
Then he had a teenage black try to tie the game up with England’s final kick and he failed too.
Obviously, a small sample size, but if the English coach’s strategy succeeded it would have been trumpeted as proof of the racial superiority of blacks and the need for England to import lots more blacks.
Because it failed and many English fans noticed it failed, it’s being megaphoned as proof that England needs even more black immigration to overwhelm those evil white racists who noticed.
Heads Diversity wins, tails you racists lose.
Imagine the op-eds if the coach had taken out two black starters to put in two white benchwarmers to take the key tiebreaker shots … and they missed.
