The UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying Group A has been dominated by England. However, on Friday, the leaders who had previously outscored opponents 19-4 through their first four games, as The Inquisitr reported, suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to the Czech Republic. When those two teams first met in March, England cruised to a 5-0 victory. Now the Three Lions take a trip to Bulgaria to face a winless team that should help to get their tournament back on track.
England will need all three points to pull away from the Czech Republic, who are now level on points at 12, in the match that will stream live from Sofia.

But there remains at least a possibility that the game could end with England simply forfeiting. While that prospect seems unthinkable, according to England striker Tammy Abraham, the players have agreed to walk off the field if England's black players are subject to racist abuse by the Bulgarian fans, as the BBC reported. The team endured racist chants from fans in another Balkan state, Montenegro, during a UEFA Euro qualifier there in March.
The Bulgarian team has reacted angrily to England's threat, with coach Krasimir Balakov insisting that racism problems are worse in England than in Bulgaria. Yet the fact remains that fan attendance will be limited in Monday's match due to UEFA sanctions imposed on Bulgaria after incidents of fan disturbances during earlier matches against Kosovo and Montenegro.
