Joe Gomez was hit by Sterling and had a scratch under his eyes. In addition, he was booed by the knuckle draggers and had racial abuse on social media.
However, what all happened to him, there was no treatment to him like the treatment was given to Maguire. Fans have been noticing the difference in how people are reacted.
They booed Joe Gomez for being assaulted by a teammate. Booing Maguire is one of the least offensive things that England fans have done in the last few years tbf. https://t.co/zYgabYMGKJ

Is it due to his race or ethnicity? Despite we talk a lot about equality, over and time again, there is proof that some discrimination against a race is still there.
LFC fans point out hypocrisy of response to Harry Maguire and Joe Gomez boos
But the biggest story to emerge from the night was Maguire being subject to boos as his name was read out before kick-off at Wembley, with his first touch also receiving jeers.
After the match, the response from manager Southgate and his international teammates was swift, each condemning the “absolute joke” of the response by some of the crowd on Tuesday night.
Harry Maguire gets booed by England fans. Manager, team mates, pundits, all condemning it & giving him full backing.
Joe Gomez gets booed by England fans. Not a fucking peep from anyone. Wonder why….?

But while the likes of Harry Kane, Jack Grealish, Declan Rice and Henderson all, rightly, condemned the reaction to the Man United defender, Liverpool fans were all left thinking the same thing.
Was this very same reaction just as strong for Joe Gomez when he was subject to boos at Wembley in 2019 after Raheem Sterling instigated an altercation and left Liverpool’s No. 12 with a cut on his face?
Sterling notably came out and said that it was “wrong” for Gomez to have been booed “for something that was my fault,” but there was a sense that there was not as emphatic of a response compared to Maguire.
And Liverpool fans pointed out the hypocrisy on social media:
The same ‘England til I die’ merchants are crying at a section of England fans for booing Harry Maguire, yet the whole stadium booed Joe Gomez for absolutely no reason whatsoever & they didn’t care…
Hate the culture of England fans. One of the reasons why I’m not part of it. pic.twitter.com/8KSPrXGETZ
