Bulgaria coach Krasimir Balakov has stepped down after England's Euro 2020 qualifying win was marred by racism chants from home supporters. The match in Sofia had to be stopped twice due to racist abuse directed at England's black players. The whole board of the Bulgarian Football Union, including president Borislav Mikhailov, has reportedly been sacked. So far there have been 12 arrests following the England game.
