Soccer-Southgate says England fans can intimidate Italy but not boo anthem

(Reuters) - England manager Gareth Southgate said the team's fans can try to intimidate Italy but should remain respectful and not boo their national anthem ahead of the European Championship final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

"I think we can intimidate the team with the booing during the game, but it's different for the anthem. I think we should be respectful."Former England international Gary Lineker made a similar request to the country's fans last week.
