Euros 2021: BBC Journalist Says ‘I Am Happy England Lost, Racism Can’t Win’

A BBC journalist, Yvette Twagiramariya, is excited over England’s loss to Italy in the Euros finals.

The Three Lions after leading England to keep chanting ‘It’s Coming Home’ after qualifying for the finals were denied the only chance at winning a major European trophy for England after almost 7 decades.

Whilst hearts are broken over the defeat with others crying over the loss, Yvette who lives in London and was at Wembley to watch the match live says it’s a happy moment that makes a bold statement against racism.

In a post after the match, the fitness enthusiast who has interviewed top African musicians and personalities like Anas Aremeyaw, Yemi Alade among others for the BBC Africa, explains that “I am so glad & happy England lost! racists don’t deserve to win! and they never will!”

Zooming in on the post-match reaction with racial abuse targeted at Rashford, Sancho and Saka for missing their penalties, Yvette is saying that “I don’t like football but the racist comments on social media about our black boys show a lot about this country! well, guess what… we are no longer your slaves (surpriseeee!)! you are not our masters. take a chill pill & sit down”.

“When you love someone at their best you should love that same person at their worst. Now, while you sipping on your tea & biscuits … those boys are enjoying their £ with their families because black people ain’t got time for hate! (me singing: it’s going to Rome! our ancestors are proud of you,” she concluded.

Prince William, Boris, Johnso, Harry Kane and more top Brit personalities have all condemned the racial abuse by some English fans.
