The Group A match was stopped twice due to sickening racist gestures

England's 6 goal thumping of Bulgaria in Monday night's Euro 2020 qualifier was a solid win, but their real victory was remaining on the pitch for 90+ minutes.

In what was one of the most blatant displays of racist abuse you are likely to see, a small group of Bulgarian ultras (you couldn't call them fans) brazenly monkey chanted and laughed as they raised wave after wave of Nazi salutes.

Bulgaria's Prime Minister, Boyko Borissov is even calling on the country's football union chief to resign after the disgusting scenes in Sofia.

Offtheball.com sports guru John Duggan explores the scenario and takes a look at ways UEFA can strengthen their protocols.
