Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has condemned the racist abuse targeted at England players on Thursday night during their world cup qualifier against Hungary .

He also called on FIFA to ‘act’ and punish the perpetrators .

“It is completely unacceptable that England players were racially abused in Hungary last night. Boris Johnson posted via his official facebook account.

“I urge FIFA to take strong action against those responsible to ensure that this kind of disgraceful behaviour is eradicated from the game for good.”

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham were targeted with monkey chants during the match in Budapest, which England won 4-0.

Hungary were handed a two-match stadium ban by European football’s governing body UEFA in July after allegations of racist chanting and homophobic banners being displayed during Euro 2020 matches against France and Portugal.

However, the ban did not come into effect for the World Cup qualifier against England because it is a FIFA competition.
