• Missiles thrown at players and reports of monkey chants
• Sterling opens scoring and reveals tribute to friend
England’s 4-0 victory over Hungary in Budapest was marred by missiles being thrown at Raheem Sterling by home supporters and reports of monkey-chants during the World Cup qualifier.
Sterling opened the scoring in the 55th minute at the Ferenc Puskas Arena and celebrated by revealing a T-shirt with the message “Love you forever Steffie Greg” in tribute to his friend who died of Covid-19 earlier this week. But the Manchester City forward was then pelted with plastic drinks thrown by a section of the crowd, with UK broadcasters ITV reporting that Sterling and Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham had also been subjected to monkey chants during the second half.
