England Players say #NoToRacism in Turin

England and Italy have joined forces to say ‘No to Racism’ ahead of tonight’s fixture in Turin.

The FA has formally backed a new anti-racism campaign from the Italian Federation (FIGC) which will see 20 events in 20 months in 20 different cities across Italy.

Three Lions trio Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott and Harry Kane showed their support at the Juventus Stadium on Monday by posing for pictures with commemorative #NoToRacism scarves before recording poignant videos messages.

FA Chairman Greg Dyke also held up one of the scarves alongside FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio.

This activity is central to a social media campaign led by both football associations.

Elsewhere, The FA approached Liverpool, the FIGC and Juventus with the view to formally mark the 30th anniversary of the Heysel Stadium disaster during the visit to Turin. 

However, Juventus politely requested for all activity to be held off while they focus their efforts on the actual anniversary later this year.
