Cape Town - West Bromwich Albion star Saido Berahino will put aside racial abuse fears as England attempt to qualify for the Under-21 European Championships.
England face Croatia with a 2-1 first leg advantage in their bid to qualify for Euro 2016 in Czech Republic reports the Independent.
England Under-21 captain Jack Butland has warned his team about the hostile environment which the side are likely to find themselves in.
“If it does happen [racist abuse] we have had discussions and we know how to deal with it,” said Berahino.
“We are just going to let the referee handle it, and we are not going to get involved in any of it.
"That is how we will qualify.”
Berahino scored a crucial penalty in the first leg to hand England the advantage ahead of Tuesday's return match in Croatia.
“We expect Croatia to give their all and push on. They won’t give an inch at their place. They showed us respect on Friday because they were away from home. It will be a time for cool heads. We can’t go out there panicking.”
