Bulgaria coach Krasimir Balakov, has condemned the supporters’ behaviour and apologised to the ­England squad.

And, the president of the Bulgaria Football Union (BFU), Borislav Mihaylov, resigned on Tuesday following a demand from the country’s Prime Minister, Boyko Borissov.

England debutant Tyrone Mings and goal scorers Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling were targeted by racist chants.

The game was on the verge of being abandoned, but England’s players decided to play on.
