AP Sports Writer

England’s players weathered a hostile atmosphere that included jeers for taking a knee, plastic cups thrown onto the field and then alleged racist chants in their 4-0 win over Hungary in a World Cup qualifier. Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane and Harry Maguire scored in a 14-minute flurry and Declan Rice added a fourth second-half goal for a result that will be overshadowed by what England’s players were subjected to.

England coach Gareth Southgate said the allegations have been reported to UEFA.
