Gary Neville called out Boris Johnson over the racist abuse of England players and went wildly viral

You’ll have read by now that the three England players who missed penalties in the shootout Euros defeat by Italy have been subjected to vile racist abuse on social media.

The racist abuse of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka has been universally condemned by the Football Association, by England manager Gareth Southgate and by Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel.

And Boris Johnson’s response prompted lots of people to say this (or something very like it).

And former England and Manchester United star turned ITV pundit Gary Neville went wildly viral when he said this on Sky News.

Here he is again today, on Sky Sports News.

And just a few of the things people were saying about it.

And it’s not the first time Neville’s had something to say about the country’s leadership during the Euros.
