England thrash Bulgaria in Euro 2020 qualifier dominated by racism

England thrashed Bulgaria 6-0 in Sofia to move one step closer to qualification for the Euro 2020 finals next summer, in a match dominated by racism.

Referee Ivan Bebek stopped the game twice in the first half with debutant Tyrone Mings one of the players subject to abuse from a group of Bulgaria supporters who later left the ground.

Aside from the off-field problems, England got things going when Marcus Rashford opened the scoring from the edge of the area seven minutes in. Two goals from Ross Barkley and Raheem Sterling’s first of the night deep into first-half stoppage time made it 4-0 at the break.
