Poland deny FA accusation that Kamil Glik racially abused Englands Kyle Walker

The Poland FA have denied that Poland centre-back Kamil Glik racially abused Kyle Walker during England's World Cup qualification match on Wednesday evening.

FIFA are investigating the situation after a mass brawl broke out on the field after the half-time whistle was blown in Warsaw.

The Three Lions dropped points for the first time in Group I after Damian Szymański headed in an equaliser for the hosts in the 92nd-minute.

But the main talking point from the game was the incident just before the break, with ITV cameras picking up images of Glik pinching the skin of Walker when the racist remarks are alleged to have taken place.

Harry Maguire was booked alongside Glik by referee Daniel Siebert after running up to confront the Poland defender as the teams made their way into the dressing room.

Now it has been said at least one of the England players believes he may have witnessed racist abuse.

Sadly, once again allegations of racism are the talking point; the Three Lions were subject to monkey chants in Budapest against Hungary just last week.

The claim has been vigorously denied by Poland media officer and team manager, Jakub Kwiatkowskis.

“The English FA said there had been a racist remark made but Glik says that is completely not true,” said Kwiatkowski after the match.

“I know the players and they have not done that and nor would they. We completely deny any allegations of wrongdoing.”
