International Media Review: Racism at Bulgaria v England

England’s convincing 6-0 win in Bulgaria last week was overshadowed by abhorrent scenes of Bulgarian fans using racist chants.

This lead to the game being halted twice as stadium announcements were made telling the fans to stop. The irony is that a section of the stadium was closed due to previous offences by Bulgarian fans.

Clearly, the sanctions aren’t working. Should UEFA be doing more to stamp it out?
