England’s Euro 2020 qualifier was temporarily halted to deal with racism after Raheem Sterling was booed when he was on the ball.

Harry Kane, England captain, was then shown talking to the referring Ivan Bebek, while manager Gareth Southgate spoke to a number of players as the announcement was made.
