Nottingham Trent University withdraws student admission notice due to racism against England players

A university withdrew its admission letter for a student after racially discriminating against England players after the European Cup final in 2020.

Video clips from the Snapchat group chat circulated on Instagram. Someone heard someone using racist language against Marcus Rashford, Jaden Sancho and Bukayo Saka during a penalty shoot-out at Wembley. Both missed the penalty.

A spokesperson for Nottingham Trent University said: “This accusation does not involve NTU students. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, including racism.

“We immediately investigated the matter, and as a result we withdrew the offer to the applicant.”

Since losing to Italy on Sunday, the police have arrested five people who racially discriminated against English players online.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed on Wednesday that the government plans to extend the football ban against online racism and that social media companies will face hefty fines if they fail to eliminate abuse on their platforms.
