The mural of Manchester United and England’s Marcus Rashford was defaced on Wednesday, hours after England crashed out of the World Cup. The wall was painted by Rashford’s father, Andre, as a tribute to his son’s rise from Manchester United’s academy. But this is the second time the piece has been vandalised.

Rashford’s missed penalty caused England to lose 3-2 on penalties at London’s Wembley Stadium and racist remarks against the player and some of his teammates arose on the internet.
A mural depicting Rashford in his hometown was defaced as a result.
The mural, a public street art project based on a photograph by Daniel Cheetham and painted by street artist Axe, was installed in Rahonour in Wittington, Manchester, and reads: Take pride in the fact that your struggle will play the biggest role in achieving your goal.
The damaged parts of the mural were covered with tarpaulins, and people also posted messages of support and red hearts on the wall.
Rashford responded on Monday by saying: I was amazed at the reaction in Wittington, I was on the verge of tears.
The communities that have put their arms around me continue to support me, he said on social media. He also tweeted pictures of the positive handwritten notes he received.
The Manchester United striker has been praised for his work promoting free school meals for the most vulnerable children in British society.
I can criticize my game all day long. …. But I will never apologise for who I am and where I come from, Rashford added.
Manchester United and England striker Marcus Rashford, who came from a modest family and went on to become one of the biggest stars in world football, has fallen out with the British Parliament over the provision of free school meals to children.
This vandalism is universally condemned.
It’s a disgusting and shameful thing to do. And 99.9% of people will be shocked by this and want to act as forcefully as possible, Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said of the incident.
We’re all for you, @MarcusRashford.
As a player. As a person. As an inspiration to our club and our fans. As a symbol of hope that there is much more good than bad in the world ❤️ #MUFC #ManUtd #Rashford pic.twitter.com/qPRxrKQXEz

After Rashford missed a penalty, Jaydon Sancho and Bucayo Saca also failed to score, allowing Italy to clinch the trophy, and all three became the targets of racist insults on social media.
The FA strongly condemns all forms of discrimination and is shocked by the online racism expressed on social media against some England players, the FA said in a statement.
We couldn’t help but say that someone guilty of such disgusting behavior can’t follow the team. We will do everything in our power to support the players involved and demand the harshest punishments for all offenders.
The England team also issued a statement condemning the abuse: We are outraged that some members of our team, who have given everything for a jersey this summer, have been the victims of discriminatory abuse online after today’s game.
England, who reached the final for the first time since 1966, took the lead through a Luke Shaw goal. Leonardo Bonucci levelled for Italy in the second half, leaving the score tied at 1-1 until extra time.
