Warning: Some readers may be offended by the content in this article
The Football Association has urged police to tackle abuse on social media after rape and death threats were made to England midfielder Karen Carney.
Chelsea's Carney, 31, received the messages on Instagram after Wednesday's Champions League win over Fiorentina.
The user has been removed from Instagram, with the FA saying it is "appalled" and "dismayed", but Carney will not be reporting it to police.
England boss Phil Neville described the messages as "absolutely disgraceful".
Chelsea said they were "abhorrent and totally unacceptable".
The posts began: "How many chances you need to score in second half bitches" before making rape and death threats.
It is understood the user is not known to Carney, who wrote "wow, some people..." in response to the messages.
"The FA takes such matters extremely seriously," said an FA statement. "The abuse of players on social networking sites is a serious concern and we call on the police and social media organisations to do everything they can to help tackle this growing problem.
"We provide all our senior England players with training, guidance and support on the use of social media and treat our duty of care in this regard with the utmost importance."
Carney has won 133 England caps since making her international debut in 2005.
A spokesperson for Instagram told BBC Sport: "We do not tolerate threatening or abusive behaviour, and the account that sent these messages has been removed from Instagram.
"We encourage anyone who sees content of this kind to report it via our in-app tools and our global team work 24/7 to review and remove anything that violates our Community Guidelines."
The Metropolitan Police said it "takes allegations of threatening and abusive behaviour very seriously" and encourages any victims of such crimes to contact police so an investigation can be carried out.

Meanwhile, snooker player Mark King posted a death threat he had received via Facebook on Thursday.
The messages to King, after he lost 4-2 to Ryan Day in the third round of the English Open, included: "Stupid fixer die."
Fellow player Barry Hawkins, who has also received abuse from online trolls, called the posts "pathetic".

What I find difficult to agree with is that the 'platform's that host these 'trolls' (ugly creatures that live under bridges and scare goats) cannot or will not give up the names and addresses of these pathetic individuals to the police. 

Likewise why does the government not charge a turnover tax on all these companies that make a big profit in the UK and play little tax? The NHS etc needs to be funded!

One party has made a start - 2017 manifesto  "An economy for All" [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - and watch out for the next manifesto which will take aim at Facebook and Google et al I am sure.

As for the OP - the pathetic creatures that aim such vile abusive messages online should be prosecuted just as they would for uttering racial or homophobic threats to someone's face Evil or Very Mad

Social media has brought us so much to be proud about but oh does it have a down side. I wonder how many of these brave creatures would dare threaten this or any other woman to her face? I doubt there would be many or even any without drink.

I posted a tweet on twitter from Durham Constabulary thanking staff at Mcdonalds drive through for reporting someone drunk while driving. I commented well done and a brave chap told me he would never use them again because he hates grasses. After telling him he was watching to much TV with his grass comment I explained my view on drink driving and how I would also reported anyone I suspected. He said he now hated me for being a grass and how he would back any drink driver over a grass like me.

Well being a quiet sensitive soul it took me seconds to ask if he ever drove when drunk and if he did to message me his contact details so I could report him, he unfollowed me.

Like most brave internet warriors he did not like being challenged, they seldom do and seem to live in some strange world.
