Man Utd veteran Ferdinand hits out at England fans
A number of England supporters joined in the singing of a song suggesting the brothers should be burned on a bonfire - it has been suggested the song had racist overtones because Anton Ferdinand was the target of racist abuse from former England captain John Terry.
Anti-racism body FARE reported England to FIFA on Thursday over the chants and the Football Association is awaiting official notification regarding the complaint.
"You expect+accept banter from fans on the terraces as its part of what makes the game great,but racism is not banter,& from ya own fans. WOW," Ferdinand tweeted.
"Always a small minority who ruin it for others.
"Let's not jump to conclusions + assume though as it might just have been banter. We'll see after the investigation."
