When England’s players took the knee last night, I was pleased to hear loud applause drown out a few boos.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 12, 2021
Then our black stars get horrifically racially abused after the game.
This is why they take the knee.
This is why I support them in taking the knee.
Three lads who were brilliant all summer had the courage to step up & take a pen when the stakes were high. They deserve support & backing not the vile racist abuse they’ve had since last night. If you abuse anyone on social media you’re not an @England fan and we don’t want you. pic.twitter.com/PgskPAXgxV— Harry Kane (@HKane) July 12, 2021
