For his part, Mohamed Elneny supported his English friend Bukayo Saka, after the campaign of the racist attack, which he is being subjected to in the last hours; Because of the loss of the Three Lions to the European Nations Cup Euro 2020

"Brother, we love you and are proud of you," Elneny wrote through his personal account on the social networking site "Twitter", in a tweet that collected a picture of him with Saka.

Arsenal also sent their support to the beloved player in the dressing room.

"We will always be proud of you and we can't wait for you to come back with us."

While David Luiz, who left this summer when his contract expired, said: "We love you, son."

Dani Ceballos, who returned to Real Madrid this summer, wrote on Twitter: "I am sure this moment will make you stronger for the future. You are one of the best footballers in football. Harsh at times, wake up my friend."

England coach Gareth Southgate took full responsibility for the missed penalties after sending Rashford and Sancho in extra time.

"It's up to me," Southgate said of the missed penalty. "I decided to take the penalties based on what they did in training."

The England coach added: "No one is alone. We won together as a team and we all should not be able to win this match."

He concluded: "In terms of penalty kicks, they are my choices and they fall entirely on me."

Some of the England fans launched a racist attack on Arsenal's Bukayo Saka, after losing the European Nations Cup final to Italy, after he missed the last penalty kick.

England fans directed a racist attack on the player's account through the official account on social networking sites, due to his missing the last penalty kick, to officially crown the Italian team with the title.
