Fans everywhere flocked to Twitter this evening to claim that Bulgaria should be banned from international football after England players were the victims of racist abuse in Sofia this evening.
The Three Lions went into half time with a 4-0 lead in their Euro 2020 qualifier tonight, however the scoreline will most likely be the least talked-about part of this evening’s match.
Some Bulgaria fans were even spotted throwing up Nazi salutes during the first 45 minutes on what was a horrible first half for all involved with the Bulgarian national team.
Following these absolutely disgusting scenes, fans from all corners of the globe took to social media to call for UEFA to clamp down on Bulgaria following these racist chants.
We completely agree with these fans, and pray UEFA do to, as we hope European football’s governing body should certainly be handing a serious, hefty punishment to Bulgaria following these awful scenes tonight.
Bulgaria should be banned from international football, that first half was disgusting. #NoToRacism

Right Bulgaria, your fans have been racist. Therefore England are to be awarded a 10-0 walkover win
And you're now banned from international football comps for the next 10 years. And after the 10 years, your home games are played behind closed doors for the next 5 years
