Raheem Sterling: England forward targeted with racist abuse during Bulgaria match
The 24-year-old was subjected to discriminatory language by a visiting fan during the first half of Saturday's match
The 24-year-old, a key figure in the fight against racism, is understood to have been subjected to discriminatory language during the first half of Saturday's match at the national stadium.
A steward heard the individual in the Bulgaria section of the ground and they were ejected from Wembley and handed to the police.
The Metropolitan Police has confirmed that the male was arrested and taken to a north London police station on suspicion of an aggravated public order offence. Following enquiries, he was released with no further action.
An FA spokesperson said: "We can confirm that an individual, who was seated in the away section of the stadium, was ejected and subsequently arrested for discriminatory abuse during the England v Bulgaria match.
"Wembley Stadium operates a zero tolerance policy on anti-social and discriminatory behaviour and anyone found guilty will be ejected and reported to the police," the statement added.
It is understood that nothing was said to Sterling during the game, with the FA's security team speaking to the forward after the 4-0 win to make him aware of the process. Uefa was informed of the incident through its matchday delegate.
