LONDON, July 11 — 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. A section of England fans booed when Denmark’s national anthem was played before their semi-final meeting. LONDON: Gareth Southgate has warned England fans not to boo Italy’s national anthem before the Euro 2020 final on Sunday. Jeers were also heard when the German anthem was played at Wembley when England beat Joachim Loew’s side in the round of 16. UEFA had opened disciplinary proceedings against England on Thursday. European football’s governing body Uefa fined England’s Football Association €30,000 (RM149,311) after a laser pointer was shone at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. The German, Danish and Scottish national anthems were all loudly jeered by England fans at Wembley earlier in the tournament. “It’s important that our fans always respect the opposition and we know that in fact when we play abroad and fans boo our anthem it probably inspires us even more, so I don’t think it will help the team,” Southgate told reporters on Saturday. The key is to hit your normal level.

“I think we can intimidate the team with the booing during the game, but it’s different for the anthem. “It’s important our fans always respect the opposition,” Southgate said. Jeers were also heard when the German anthem was played at Wembley last week, when England beat Joachim Loew’s side in the round of 16. I think we should be respectful.” Former England international Gary Lineker made a similar request to the country’s fans last week. I don’t think it will help the team. “If you’re lucky enough to get a ticket for the final, please, please don’t boo the Italian anthem,” Lineker tweeted on Thursday. “A/ It’s an absolute belter and worth listening to.” Subscribe to our newsletter and get news delivered to your mailbox. “There are fantastic players all the way through the Italian team, they have a good tactical plan, an experienced coach and are on an amazing run,” he said.

B/ It’s bloody rude, disrespectful and utterly classless.” England have not won a major tournament since their solitary success at the 1966 World Cup and the country is gripped with anticipation of ending that wait on Sunday. — Reuters Related Articles .
