Gareth Southgate's men stood firm in the face of sickening racism as England thrashed Bulgaria on a night of shame in Sofia.

The Three Lions took a giant stride towards Euro 2020 as they bounced back from Friday's shock loss in the Czech Republic, yet this will match will be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

Nazi salutes and racist chanting marred Monday's thumping 6-0 win in Bulgaria, where Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane goals complemented braces from Ross Barkley and Raheem Sterling as the players showed great dignity in finishing the match.
