England fans reported for racist chants.

For those who missed it :

“Build a bonfire, build a bonfire

Put Rio on the top

Put Anton in the middle

Then burn the f****** lot”

Was the supposed chant by the England fans at the Montenegro match on Tuesday night.

It did not escape the attentions of Football anti-racism network Fare who duly reported the singing as having racial overtones.

Coupled with the sickening chants at the San Marino game it seems that English will have to  accept that they, too, have a racist element in the hordes. It will be a bitter pill to swallow given that the FA and supporters have been tirelessly clapping themselves on the back and quickly pointing the finger at everyone from Spain to the Ukraine, of late.

This comes after a suspension for their former captain, John Terry and the “Kick it Out” campaign in ruin.

Oliver Holt in today’s Mirror hits the nail on the head:
