An English university has withdrawn an offer they made to a student after racially abusing Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka on social media following their missed penalties for England against Italy.
The three England players received a ton of racist abuse on Sunday night after missing their spot kicks in England’s penalty shootout defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.
Five people have been arrested, but for one person, the abuse has cost them their university place. The prospective student had applied to go to Nottingham Trent University and had received a conditional offer. However, the individual was heard using racist language in a Snapchat group chat which then went on Instagram and has since been punished.
“This allegation does not involve an NTU student. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, including racism,” a Nottingham Trent University spokesperson said. “We looked into this matter immediately and as a result have withdrawn an offer to an applicant.”
The identity of the student has not been revealed and it is not known what degree the person had applied for. What is certain is that the individual’s comments has cost them a place at university.
