A football fan from south Wales is SLOTXO raising money for a young German girl who was abused online to "show her not everyone in the UK is horrible". The comments were made by England fans on social media when the little girl was pictured crying in the crowd after England beat Germany in the Euros. Ex-England player Gary Lineker tweeted: "Absolutely disgusting. Sickening xenophobia." Joel Hughes has so far raised more than £8,000 for a "nice treat" for the girl. Mr Hughes, from Caerleon, Newport, said he would like to make contact with the girl's family about the online fundraiser. The 51-year-old businessman told BBC Wales: "I watched the match, it was a good match. I was aware of some of the negative atmosphere, you could hear the booing and whatever, but I didn't think any more of it." But after seeing the "vile abuse of the images of that little girl" online, Mr Hughes said he thought: "I've had enough of this." Mr Hughes said he thinks the UK has "turned into such an intolerant country," and that "there's so much xenophobia now".
