DIMITAR Evtimov branded Bulgarian fans as ‘embarrassing’ as racist chanting marred their Euro 2020 qualifier with England.

Stanley's Bulgarian goalkeeper took to social media during the game, which was almost abandoned due to the conduct of home supporters, to slam those involved in the chanting directed towards Tyrone Mings, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling during England’s 6-0 win.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has urged the "football family" to "wage war on the racists" and investigations in to the incidents is now ongoing.

Evtimov signed for Stanley in January and has been an ever-present this season.

He is yet to feature for his country, but was named in their squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo in March.

“Absolutely embarrassing and makes me feel sick that this is happening in 2019,” the 26-year-old wrote on social media.

“I am a proud Bulgarian and I can assure you, there are only few idiots that are trying to shame our country and they should be brought to justice.”

Rovers captain Elliott Bennett was among those condemning the actions of those inside the stadium.

Posting on social media, he wrote: “To the Bulgarian racists at tonight’s game, you’re getting schooled by an England team made up of what makes this country great, a diverse and energetic young team made up of black, white and mixed race players!”
