    Andy Purchase: We need to realise that much of the rest of Europe, particularly the East and the former Yugoslav states don't share our disgust of racism. That's not excusing it but anyone shocked and surprised by what happened last night are naive in the extreme.

    Adam Kitchiner: Points deduction irrelevant for teams like Montenegro. They don't qualify anyway. Outright ban is the only way.

  4. Harry Wilson donates signed shirt to Corwen football flood appeal

    This is a lovely gesture from Harry Wilson...

    The winger has donated the shirt he wore as Wales beat Slovakia for fund-raising efforts to help his former club raise money to repair flood damage.

    Corwen Juniors, where Wilson learned the game, were affected by March floods that struck areas of north Wales.

    Wilson helped Wales win their opening Euro 2020 qualifier, then had his team-mates sign his top to be auctioned.

    Corwen Juniors' pitches were flooded and playing equipment was also damaged as the River Dee burst its banks.

    Over £2,000 of a £10,000 target had been donated online after seven days of fundraising following the heavy rain.

    Cheesycat: How about avoid the dull behind closed doors option which we all know is awful to watch and ban them from hosting home games. They must play all games away. That way we don't have to put up with such terrible home fans. Maybe no away fans either.

  6. Footballers show support for Sterling on Instagram

    A number of fellow footballers shared their support on Raheem Sterling's Instagram post, including Paul Pogba, Joe Hart and Jadon Sancho.

  7. Breaking'Abuse unacceptable at any level' - FA

    "On Monday evening, England players were subjected to abhorrent racist chanting while playing in a UEFA EURO 2020 qualifier in Montenegro.

    "This is unacceptable at any level of the game and we welcome UEFA’s decision today to take disciplinary action. Our immediate focus is on supporting UEFA with their investigation and the players and staff involved.

    "The issues we saw last night are not isolated to any specific country, and despite progress English football still has its own incidents of discrimination.

    "Our experience is that by combining both sanctions and education, whilst working alongside campaigners such as Kick It Out, real progress can be made. But there remains much work to be done.

    "Football is a game For All and we must all take responsibility to work together and share our experiences and learnings to tackle discrimination in the game."

  8. 'We're at rock bottom' - Scotland captain Robertson

    Scotland are at "rock bottom" after their first two Euro 2020 qualifying games, says captain Andy Robertson.

    Alex McLeish's side are fifth in Group I following a 3-0 defeat in Kazakhstan and an unconvincing 2-0 win over San Marino, the world's bottom-ranked side.

    But the Liverpool left-back is calling on the squad to "stick together" in a bid to recover from their sticky start.

  11. Coventry City owners Sisu told to drop legal action over Ricoh Arena

    Coventry City's owners Sisu have been told they must either call off their legal action against the local council or sell the League One club.

    An open letter from the leader of Coventry City Council George Duggins urged Sisu to end the "divisive" dispute over the Ricoh Arena's sale.

    Sisu has promised it will drop legal action against the council if it got support to build a home in the city.

    But Coventry City Council said Sisu's stance was "corrosive".

    John: Racism is everywhere and not just in football! Racist people in stadiums don't have a racism switch like: "oh i'm going to the game, i'll be racist! After i'm out, i'll turn off my switch! Doesn't work that way! Means governments have a huge role to play asides Fifa

    TitleTownOtaku: UEFA need to spot beating around the bush and make a strong statement. 3 point deduction first offence, 6 points the second, third offence is complete ban from the competition/6 point deduction for next competition qualification round.

    Matt: Whether it’s a fine or play behind closed doors it won’t stop the abuse. More severe punishment is needed. If there’s enough evidence maybe go as far as banning teams from tournaments. They’ll suddenly start taking more notice once their team can no longer compete

  14. 'We can put pressure on Georgia' - Ireland's Hendrick

    Republic of Ireland v Georgia (19:45 GMT)

    Republic of Ireland midfielder Jeff Hendrick says his side have a chance to "put pressure" on their Group D rivals with a win over Georgia on Tuesday.

    Mick McCarthy's side laboured to a 1-0 victory over Gibraltar in their opening Euro 2020 qualifier on Saturday with Hendrick scoring the winning goal.

    "Six points would be good for our morale and momentum," he said.

    "We want to be putting points on the board and putting pressure on other teams in the group."

    Ash Williams: The only way racism gets stamped out is banning them for a different length of time for 1st,2nd and 3rs offences. No more playing behind closed doors. That clearly does not work.

    Steven Blake: In my opinion Montenegro should be forced to play rest of qualifying campaign home matches behind closed doors and banned from competing in the qualifiers for the next world cup

  16. 'Governing bodies really need to show that they’re taking this seriously'

    Talking about potential punishment UEFA could hand out, Troy Townsend from Kick it Out told the BBC: ‘’Is closing a stadium for a game that’s not going to be against England worthy? Or is expulsion more worthy?

    "I’m saying now that if we’re really going to show that we’re challenging – and I say ‘we’ because I’m part of the football industry – so, if the governing bodies are really going to show that they’re challenging and taking this seriously then I’m all for the ‘enough is enough’; you can’t play in this tournament until you sort yourself out.’’

    SMS Message: Points deduction should be the punishment. This will then make countries FAs act within! Let’s face it the UK are no better... everyone is talking about countries getting the right punishment from UEFA but the FA doesn’t do much when it comes to English clubs been punished!! As a whole FIFA, UEFA and all FAs should get together and just say if club/country are found to be guilty then it’s points deduction or if it continues then banned from tournament or worst dropped to a lower league. Even in this day and age it’s still crazy people who go to football stadiums think it’s ok to do this sort of things!! Would they really go on the street and make monkey noises to others? from Simon
