England NT Update: Bukayo Saka speaks; Marcus Rashford mural restored; Mings tells Priti to Fuck Off

It's been a few days since the Euros Final on Sunday during which England lost to Italy on penalties.

Thankfully, there has also been an immense outpouring of love to counteract this. Here are a few updates:

1. 19-year-old Bukayo Saka, who missed a penalty on Sunday, released a statement on Twitter after being racially abused following the match, thanking everyone for their support:

2. Marcus Rashford's mural in Manchester was restored and repainted after vandals sprayed it with graffiti and insults:
