England attacker Raheem Sterling was pelted with cups by Hungary fans who reportedly shouted racist chants at him after he scored the opening goal in a FIFA World Cup qualifying match in Budapest on Thursday.

Sterling opened the scoring in the second half, putting England up 1-0 with a beautiful, simple finish. As he celebrated his goal, Sterling tore off his jersey to reveal a tribute to Steffie Gregg, a 26-year-old Twitch streamer who died from COVID-19 complications earlier in the week.

As he celebrated, he was pelted with cups from the crowd.

ITV journalist Gabriel Clarke also reported that fans made monkey sounds and gestures at Sterling and 18-year-old England player Jude Bellingham during the match.
