Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling says that Montenegro should be forced to play their games behind closed doors after England players were subjected to racist chants during last night’s European Championship qualifying game.

Sterling tweeted a picture of his defiant celebration in front of home supporters with the message: “Best way to silence the haters (and yeah I mean racists).”

He added the hashtags #2019 and #getsomeeducation and later demanded football’s authorities do more to tackle racism following a match which was overshadowed by reports of monkey chanting towards England players.

England manager Gareth Southgate said that he had heard racist abuse directed at his left-back Danny Rose at the end of the game as the full-back was being shown a yellow card, and the manager said the Football Association would be making an official report following his team’s 5-1 victory
