England travel to the Czech Republic on Friday before facing Bulgaria on Monday. In Sofia the Stadion Vasil Levski will be partially closed after Bulgaria were punished for fans’s behaviour in June.

It was reported yesterday that England players would “walk off” if they suffered any racist abuse.

The Star says that anti-racism group FARE will have three special match observers on duty in Sofia next Monday. They will have a link-up to the match delegate and fourth official.
