Bruno Fernandes has sent a message of support to Marcus Rashford after England lost EURO 2020 final to Italy in a penalty shootout.
The Three Lions opened the scoring already in the second minute, thanks to Luke Shaw’s goal. However, Leonardo Bonucci equalised the score in the 67th minute. The winner couldn’t be decided both in the main and extra times so the game headed into the penalty shootout.
Italy picked up a 3-2 win on penalties and were crowned EURO 2020 champions for the second time in their history.
Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka missed their penalties, as Gianluigi Donnarumma saved them all. After the game all of the three players received disgusting racial abuse, with Rashford’s mural at Manchester even got vandalised, however, fans redecorated it with supportive messages.
And his Manchester United teammate Fernandes sent supportive message, as he retweeted Rashford’s tweet with a quote:
“You should only be proud of what you achieved in this tournament! Hold your head up high, bro!
“You’re an example for everyone on and off the pitch.”
