“Disgusting” – England fans reaction to Giorgio Chiellini challenge on Bukayo Saka – Football.London

England fans have reacted online following a controversial moment in England’s EURO 2020 final against Italy.

Only moments before the referee’s whistle blew for the end of the normal time, Bukayo Saka raced past Giorgio Chiellini only for the Italian to yank the Arsenal winger back.

Replays clearly showed the defender firmly tugging the neck of Saka’s shirt, pulling the teenager to the ground in a sort of choke.

With the scores tied at 1-1 and heading to extra time, Saka could have raced through on goal to create one last chance for England. However, Chiellini took no chances with his unique challenge, taking the yellow card, and stopping the 19-year-old in his tracks.
