Bulgarian FA says England players must obey walk-off rules

"Kane did ask the question about instead of going through the three steps, if we decide that we want to stop the game and we want to stop the game - no matter what the score is - if we are not happy with it, as a team we will decide whether or not to stay on the pitch", Abraham said. The Nations League was a bit disappointing, however we've received one other likelihood now and I really feel that numerous the gamers don't simply wish to be concerned in tournaments and end within the quarter-finals and say that was an excellent run, or the semi-finals.

That system can see a referee stop a match, then take players off the pitch, and if the problem persists an abandonment can be declared.

"He's a quality player, an intelligent footballer, presses well, has a real eye for goal, good quality".

Silhavy, who team crashed 5-0 at Wembley and a Raheem Sterling hat-trick in February, said: "We saw that England players are not flawless at Southampton - and we hope that we can take advantage of that".

Speaking ahead of Friday's fixture with the Czechs, Southgate said: "There is a UEFA process and we have to have faith in that process".

"The Bulgarian public has in no way committed any recent infringements that deserve it to be stereotyped as "racist" or "hostile" - and I am sure you will agree that these accusations are not only unjust but are continuous attempts to disrupt the atmosphere before a very much anticipated game of football". Everyone should be given the chance to play in a fair environment.

Southgate added: "The most important thing for me was that all of the players and all of the staff know that they're supported, that we're together on every issue moving forward and then of course, inevitably, because we've suffered a situation in Montenegro, we wanted to be clear what might happen if something happened in the future".

Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling, who has spoken out against racism after suffering abuse during the 5-1 win away in Montenegro, backed his manager's call to let UEFA take action.

England will be hoping to continue their fine start to qualifying having collected maximum points from their first four matches in Group A. We are a team.
