Tammy Abraham says England are well prepared to wander off the pitch this past week if theyre targeted by abuse in their Euro 2020 qualifiers.
England face the Czech Republic on Friday – then play Bulgaria on Monday at a partially-closed scene due to fans stereotypical behavior in June.
If it happens to one of us, this happens to us all, Abraham said.
Harry Kane said that when were not happy, when a player isnt happy, all of us come from the pitch together.
Uefa ordered the closure of Bulgarias national stadium following behaviour by their lovers at Euro 2020 qualifying matches against Kosovo and the Czech Republic in June.
Back in August, Bulgarian club sides PFC Levski Sofia and PFC Lokomotiv Plovdiv were penalized by Uefa for racism during Europa League games.
England manager Gareth Southgate stated last month he would speak with the players before the game of the next week, also Abraham claims the players have decided they will take things into their own hands if needed.
Uefa protocol for racial abuse ends with the officers if the problem is not stopped by announcements in a stadium, abandoning a game.
We did speak about this [the protocol], Abraham said. Harry Kane did ask the question of instead of going through the 3 steps, should we determine that we would like to stop the match – no matter what the score is – if were not satisfied with this, as a staff we will choose whether to stay on the pitch.
If it happens and lets say theres a warning or anything in the arena, then it happens , we have to make a decision as a team and with the staff.
Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings claims it isunsatisfactory to need to deal with racism in soccer in 2019 but echoed Southgates remarks from this past year that England still has to work to do on home soil.
Villas 5-1 win in Norwich last Saturday was accompanied closely by the team saying theyredisgusted and appalled by footage of supporters singing a racist tune that references two first-team players.
It highlights the fact that our country isnt ideal, Mings told BBC Radio 5 Live.
The fact that we talk about it [racism] in overseas countries, as well as European nations that arent always as diverse is 1 thing, but there are problems going on in this nation [England] as well, which is far from perfect.
Both are issues which people should never get tired of speaking about. They have to be attracted to light by those that have a voice like 19, if theyre currently occurring. We must tackle it, we have to get it right somehow.
There have been great strides to attempt and eradicate racism out of football. It is a society problem.
