Rashford, along with two other Black players, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, missed penalties that secured Italy's victory. They were subsequently subject to ificant racist backlash on social media. The work, painted by the Manchester-based street artist Akse, was reportedly commissioned in recognition of Rashford's key role in campaigning to end child food poverty in the UK.
Local residents covered the racist graffiti in messages of support Twitter.
But soon after the work had been vandalised, hundreds had come out to cover the graffiti in hearts and messages of solidarity such as "Hero" and "You make us proud". Rashford said in a statement that he was "on the verge of tears" when he saw how many local residents had come out in support.MANCHESTER UNITED + Fuck the rest!
If I have nothing else I have that. Several leading UK politicians, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson and home secretary Priti Patel have condemned the abuse targeted towards Black members of England's football team. Patel said the messages were "vile" and "racist", adding "it has no place in our country and I back the police to hold those responsible able".
However, both have been widely criticised and accused of hypocrisy over their pre-tournament stances on whether England fans were right to boo players taking the knee.
