Racial Abuse: Tammy Abraham Says English Players Will Walk Off If Targeted by ogbiwa: 4:23am On Oct 09, 2019
Tammy Abraham says England are prepared to walk off the pitch if they are targeted by racist abuse in their Euro 2020 qualifiers this week.

England face the Czech Republic on Friday - then play Bulgaria on Monday in a partially-closed stadium because of fans' racist behaviour in June.

"If it happens to one of us, it happens to all of us," Abraham said.

"Harry Kane even said that if we're not happy, if a player is not happy, we all come off the pitch together."

Uefa ordered the partial closure of Bulgaria's national stadium following racist behaviour by their fans in Euro 2020 qualifying games against the Czech Republic and Kosovo in June.

In August, Bulgarian club sides PFC Levski Sofia and PFC Lokomotiv Plovdiv were punished by Uefa for racism during Europa League games.

England manager Gareth Southgate said last month that he would talk to the players before next week's game, and Abraham says the players have decided they will take matters into their own hands if necessary.

Uefa's three-step protocol for racial abuse ends with the officials abandoning a match if announcements inside a stadium do not stop the problem.

"We did speak about that [the protocol]," Abraham said. "Harry Kane did ask the question about instead of going through the three steps, if we decide that we want to stop the game - no matter what the score is - if we're not happy with it, as a team we'll decide whether or not to stay on the pitch.

"If it happens and let's say there's a warning or whatever in the stadium, then it happens again, we have to make a decision as a team and with the staff."

Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings says that it is "disappointing" to have to deal with racism in football in 2019 but echoed Southgate's comments from last year that England still has work to do on home soil.

Villa's 5-1 win at Norwich last Saturday was followed by the club saying they are "disgusted and appalled" by footage of supporters singing a racist song which references two first-team players.

"It highlights the fact that our own country isn't perfect," Mings told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"The fact that we talk about it [racism] in foreign countries, in other European countries that aren't necessarily as diverse is one thing, but there are issues going on in this country [England] as well, which is far from ideal.

"Both are issues that people should never get bored of talking about. If they are happening they have to be brought to light by people who have a voice like us. We have to address it, we have to get it right somehow.

"There have been great strides to try to eradicate racism from football. It's a society issue."

I'm bracing for the "you wouldn't have this problem if you chose Nigeria".
But thing is Abraham made a choice and I think his choice should be respected.
Our focus should rather be on Nigeria doing nothing to develop our thousands of talented players who will outperform the likes of Abraham if given same privileges. That's what I think we should focus on. England developed Abraham so they should reap from their investment. The only value Nigeria added to Tammy Abraham is that he has a Nigerian name. We only love reaping where another person sowed.

How does this relate to the topic?

Tammy should have chosen Nigeria .. Where he would be loved. I know Nigeria is a difficult place.. But at the end of the day there is no place like home.. He got a call up to the England squad because of his current form..the minute he under perform he would be dropped. Let see how long he last with the English FA.

Imagine if iwobi had gone to England.. Considering the constant abuse he get when he was an arsenal player..iwobi would have lost his mind if not for the loved shown to him from nigeria.
It only a matter of time the same treatment that was given to iwobi at arsenal will be given to him in the English team if he under perform.. They never treat their white counterpart like that even if they drop a solid 4/10.

Don't worry boy, Southgate may not even use you or you think he will bench Kane for you? Even with your current form, I doubt it. So no need to worry about racism. It is better for a black not to play for any country rather than playing for England.

The same way we "loved" Victor Moses and Odion Ighalo into retirement, right?

Yeah, Naija is difficult, made ever more so by our ruling parasites who seem bent on squeezing us dry, but, on top of that, we focus so much on lines of division that never did anyone any good.

Our mentality is another story. We never expect, (neither do we accept it's possible for) a player to have a bad day on the pitch. We begin to give them bad names and even rain curses on them.

These words get back to the players fast, in this world of social media. And don't get me started on NFF and their corruption......It takes stubborn, even fanatical determination for players to keep playing for Nigeria.
