The Football Association has issued a statement following allegations that England players Ashley Cole and Ashley Young were racially abused on Twitter, after missing penalties against Italy in the Euro 2012 games yesterday.
We are concerned at the reports regarding allegations of abuse aimed at England players Ashley Cole and Ashley Young on Twitter.
They have just given everything for the national team at Euro 2012 and it is appalling and unacceptable that messages of an abusive type are being posted.
We support any police investigation in identifying who is behind this.
