Raheem Sterling was subjected to monkey chants during England's 4-0 win over Hungary on Thursday night – and the moment he first heard the abuse paints a depressing picture.
FIFA insist they will be taking action after Hungary fans reportedly directed racist abuse towards Sterling and team-mate Jude Bellingham in Budapest.
England captain Harry Kane was also understood to have received anti-semitic insults while carrying out his post-match interview with ITV Sport.
In footage released by ITV, monkey chants can be heard coming from the home crowd behind the goal when Sterling goes down inside the box during the second half.
The Manchester City star is visibly disgusted when he turns around to face the Hungary end, before appearing to say: "Oh my god."
FIFA released a statement on Friday to stress they have a "zero-tolerance stance" on racism and will be taking "adequate actions" over the allegations during Thursday's World Cup qualifier.
The statement reads: "First and foremost, FIFA strongly rejects any form of racism and violence and has a very clear zero-tolerance stance for such behaviour in football.
"FIFA will take adequate actions as soon as it receives match reports concerning yesterday's Hungary-England game.
"With regards to the previous UEFA sanction against Hungary, please note that as specified by UEFA at the time, this sanction is to be served in UEFA competitions."

Sterling opened the scoring for England on a disturbing night in Hungary, turning home from Mason Mount's cross 10 minutes into the second half.
After converting he took off his shirt to reveal a touching tribute to late Twitch streamer and good friend Steffie Gregg, who passed away from Covid-19 complications at the age of 26 on Tuesday.
Potential punishments Hungary could face from FIFA after aiming racist abuse at England
Like the rest of his team-mates on the night, Sterling was pelted with plastic cups when celebrating his goal while also receiving racist abuse.
Kane then doubled England's lead, before goals from Harry Maguire and Declan Rice put them out of sight.
