England: Tammy Abraham reveals what he’ll do if racially abused by fans

England manager Gareth Southgate has tipped Nigeria-born Bukayo Saka to challenge for a place in the English squad ahead of the Euro 2020.

Tammy Abraham says England are prepared to defy Uefa rules on racism and walk off the pitch if they face abuse during Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Who will reach the finals?

"Harry Kane said that if it happens (racist abuse) and we're not happy with it, we speak to the player and if he's not happy, we all come off the pitch together".

"We have an obligation to follow the protocols, that's what we need to do".

"I strongly suggest that the UEFA administration take measures against the build-up of unnecessary tension", he said in a letter to UEFA published online. I've been working hard, listening to people, trying to improve myself and it's going well. "It was a insane feeling because I wasn't really expecting it but I'm very happy".

"I think that there are a lot of great front threes in the world", he stated. It's not just affecting one person, it's affecting the team.

He will add some extra creative flair to the England team, which the likes of Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho would truly love. "They want to be judged on their football and what I've got to do is provide a safe and secure environment to play".

"Just hopefully I can get many years experience under my belt for England".

"And how we see the guys in training and their physical level". It doesn't effect the fact Nigeria still wanted me, and it's a big nation.

"I'd say every single player, and the manager, all want to go into tournaments with the thought of winning it".

"We're very clear on that". There is of course the Uefa process and we need to have faith in that process.

Growing up in England and seeing the players playing at Wembley, it was such a good feeling.

European governing body UEFA's three-step protocol for racism can lead to the referee abandoning a match if warnings to the crowd do not stop the fans racially abusing the players.

The team plays against the Czech Republic on Friday before facing Bulgaria on Monday in a partially empty stadium - a punishment for Bulgarian supporters' racist behavior earlier this year.
