bbc.comTammy Abraham says England are prepared to walk off the pitch if they are targeted by racist abuse in their Euro 2020 qualifiers this week.England face the Czech Republic on Friday - then play Bulgaria on Monday in a partially-closed stadium because of fans' racist behaviour in June."If it happens to one of us, it happens to all of us," Abraham said.
"Harry Kane even said that if we're not happy, if a player is not happy, we all come off the pitch together."

"If it happens and let's say there's a warning or whatever in the stadium, then it happens again, we have to make a decision as a team and with the staff."Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings says that it is "disappointing" to have to deal with racism in football in 2019 but echoed Southgate's comments from last year that England still has work to do on home soil.Villa's 5-1 win at Norwich last Saturday was followed by the club saying they are "disgusted and appalled" by footage of supporters singing a racist song which references two first-team players."It highlights the fact that our own country isn't perfect," Mings told BBC Radio 5 Live."The fact that we talk about it [racism] in foreign countries, in other European countries that aren't necessarily as diverse is one thing, but there are issues going on in this country [England] as well, which is far from ideal."Both are issues that people should never get bored of talking about. If they are happening they have to be brought to light by people who have a voice like us. We have to address it, we have to get it right somehow. "There have been great strides to try to eradicate racism from football. It's a society issue."
