- England's trip to Bulgaria was marred by racist abuse hurled at their players during the Euro 2020 qualifier in Sofia. Play was halted twice as part of a new protocol aimed at stopping racism in football. A section of Bulgaria's support could be seen giving Nazi salutes as well aiming monkey chants at players. The FA Chairman, Greg Clarke, described it as 'one of the most appalling nights I've seen in football'.
