Football fans chant racist abuse at French players

Football fans in Qatar who are supporting Argentina, have been filmed chanting racist abuse targeted towards France’s national football team ahead of the World Cup.

In the footage a group of men can be seen chanting that all the French players are from Angola while also referencing the Nigerian and Cameroonian heritage of some of the players.

In one of the chants they make an explicit remark about star Kylian Mbappé, who plays for France and is of Cameroonian and Algerian heritage.

After a few seconds, the fans making the insulting remarks are cut off by the TV reporter.

Racism in football has been prevalent for many years, with black players receiving abuse whilst on the pitch and on social media.

The World Cup in Qatar starts this weekend.
