The former Middlesbrough player and now England manager Gareth Southgate has come in for some criticism for his comments on England fans. England take on Germany this evening in the Nations League and there could well be trouble at the game between the two fans.
The former England underage manager said;
“It definitely has an impact. You are embarrassed when you hear about it, because you know it’s a representation of your country.”
"I think that he's the most overrated England manager of all time."

Not sure it’s the best words to be using or is it the right ones, but if his comments defiantly had some England fans rather upset.
It’s a match that England will be determinate to win against the old Enemy Germany, especially after losing to Austria last weekend. Should be a cracker this evening..
