Shortly after the game, Rashford, Saka, and Sancho were racially targeted on social media.
However, in a statement issued to the PA news agency, The UK Football Policing Unit (UKFPU) said: "Following England's defeat against Italy on Sunday a torrent of racist comments aimed at some of the team's black players appeared on platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
"A hate crime investigation is underway by the UKFPU, with a dedicated team of investigators working their way through a large number of reports from across the country.
"So far, dozens of data applications have been submitted to social media companies and four people have been arrested by local police forces."
