People Are Calling For England To Be Banned From The World Cup

People are calling for the Three Lions to be banned from participating in the World Cup following England's heartbreaking loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.

The dust has barely settled on the tournament and some fans are already looking towards to next year's battle in Qatar and believe England shouldn't be a part of it.

But these calls aren't anything to do with the players' performance.

Instead, the horrific behaviour of a minority of fans has tarnished England's reputation and some believe this alone should be grounds to disqualify the Three Lions from competing in the biggest tournament in the game.

Three players from the Euro 2020 team, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, have been racially abused on social media, which has prompted outcry from the Football Association, England manager Gareth South, the British Royal Family and loads of critics.

The Met Police was also forced to make 49 arrests during and after the game, with 19 officers injured as a result of 'volatile' crowds.

Following these incidents, many have taken to social media to claim England doesn't deserve to play in Qatar next year.

One person wrote: "'I think the players deserve to play, but I think they should ban next World Cup and Euro matches from taking place in England, so all England games will be away."

Another said: "'I hope England get banned for the World Cup and the next Euros for the fans behaviour tonight absolutely disgusting."

A third added: "England should be banned from next year's World Cup and the next Euros."

It's highly unlikely that the Three Lions won't be permitted to go, however the events that transpired on Sunday (July 11) night and afterwards have held up a mirror to parts of England that many thought had been erased.

Clearly a lot of work is yet to be done to stamp out racism and rowdy behaviour.

But that's not the only call coming from social media regarding the Euro 2020 final.

Some are even suggesting there should be a rematch between England and Italy because some believe the result was 'biased'.

Italy has been accused of not playing fairly in some stages of the lengthy match that went into extra time locked at 1-1 before a penalty shootout helped declare the winner.

Italy's team captain, Giorgio Chiellini, pulled on Bukayo Saka's collar and caused him to fall to the ground and some thought a red card was more warrant than the given yellow.

Loads of petitions have since been launched online to call for a rematch, however the likelihood of that happening are slim to none.
