Raheem Sterling silences the racists as defiant England humble Hungary in Budapest
The i says England’s players knelt proudly and determinedly in the face of the hostile boos that reverberated around the Puskas Arena – then Raheem Sterling silenced all of them with the opening goal and yet another scintillating performance for the national team.
That his strike came in front of the end of the mightily impressive stadium desperately trying to contain the heaving Hungarian ultras made it that bit sweeter. That it was the spark to catalyse a thumping in the face of racism even more so.
Sterling, unsure where to turn in a stadium full of home supporters after scoring, sprinted into a corner, where he was pelted with plastic cups half-full of drinks, as were the rest of his team-mates when they joined him. That was only the start.
