England defender Tyrone Mings says he could hear the racist abuse "as clear as day" but "everybody made the decision" to continue the Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia.
Play was halted twice in the first halfbecause of abuse from supporters.
In line with Uefa protocol, England had the option to walk off the pitch but played the full 90 minutes and won 6-0.
"I am very proud of everyone for the decisions we made," Mings told BBC Radio 5 Live after his England debut.

Haven't a clue, maybe there isn't one, maybe they are fearful that their country will one day end up as a multicultural hell hole like so many European states.  :-\

Police and Special forces have also raised the Bulgarian F.A. HQ, not sure what good it'll do.

The racist group got into the ground wearing stewards' jackets as a cover.
