8 October 2019

Gareth Southgate has briefed England’s players about UEFA’s three-step racism protocol ahead of the upcoming international against Bulgaria, defender Fikayo Tomori has confirmed.

The Three Lions will attempt to seal qualification for Euro 2020 in the Czech Republic on Friday, before heading to Bulgaria for a Group A clash on Monday.

There are concerns about that match at the Natsionalen Stadion Vasil Levski, with Southgate taking the unusual step of expressing concerns a month in advance about the potential for racism in Sofia.

The England manager has now spoken to his players about the potential issues in Bulgaria on Monday, explaining in detail the system in place should players be subjected to racism.
