CAPE City, July 12 (Reuters) - British and Irish Lions lock Maro Itoje has slammed the "appalling" racist abuse meted out to the trio of Black England soccer players who missed penalties in the final of the European Championship on Sunday. Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka all missed their kicks in the shoot-out as Italy won 3-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw at Wembley, leaving England´s 55-year look forward to a serious trophy on-going. Twitter mentioned it had eliminated greater than 1,000 tweets and completely suspended quite a few accounts following the "abhorrent" racist abuse directed on the England players. Itoje instructed reporters in Cape City on Monday. And that is a considerable amount of the rationale why a lot speak is completed about racism in sport because these incidences happen on a semi-regular foundation, which isn't what anybody needs to see. It´s not what anybody desires to hear. Arsenal fan Itoje said he felt significantly sorry for teenager Saka, who was left in tears on the pitch following his miss and has since been a goal for abuse. When he missed the penalty, and that i noticed his response after, I just felt so unhappy for him. He´s a young man. He´s 19 years old. He´s going to play for England for a few years to come back. Itoje is in the Lions side that can play South Africa 'A' in Cape City on Wednesday.
