Disgusting was one word that comes to our mind when we watched several videos floating online where Italy fans were brutally attacked by the supporters of England after the match. The fans kicked the supporters of Italy and were seen hitting them while hurling racial abuses. The visuals and the video of the same went viral. The abuse didn't stop here. It also extended to hurling racial abuses at the players including Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jaden Sancho after they failed to score goals on spot kicks.

The trolling went even online and it was so nasty that the England FA had to issue a statement condemning the acts. "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," read a part of their statement. In fact, even the netizens made sure to slam this behaviour on social media. Check out the videos below:

This is not the first time when the English fans have gone berserk while expressing their emotions. In fact, when England made its way into the finals, the police had made over 20 arrests for the fans who had gone overboard while celebrating the win.
