England and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford fears football is”going backwards rather than forwards” from the fight against racism.
Rashford was abused on social networking after missing a penalty in the defeat.
There have been incidents while Romelu Lukaku was exposed to racist chanting between Paul Pogba and Tammy Abraham.
“To find that it spike in the last couple of months is incredible,” said Rashford.
“I’ve always stated, the longer people speak about itdoesn’t have a direct impact – you will find cases where people have spoken and nothing has actually changed.
“We want to nip it at the bud.”
Social networking platform Twitter says it’s”taken actions” on”more than 700 examples of hateful conduct” within the last two weeks.
Twitter stated it had also met”directly affected” clubs, the Professional Footballers’ Association and Kick it Out in an effort to”tackle the matter collectively”.
However, Rashford considers more needs to be carried out.
“For me personally, it is too easy to do whatever you prefer on the world wide web,” he added.
“Any people today could go on and create stories and write what we need under anyone’s posts and no one would ever know.
“It’s simple to figure it out and in case you need to show identification to create an account that means everybody can just have one account.
“For me personally, there is thousands of people that use my name on social networking and they’re able to write what they like.”
