(Reuters pic). LONDON: Gareth Southgate has warned England fans not to boo Italy’s national anthem before the Euro 2020 final on Sunday. "It's not necessarily about doing better. Around 60,000 England supporters will turn Wembley into a hostile environment for Italy as the Three Lions aim to win their first major title for 55 years. Roberto Mancini’s side are unbeaten in their last 33 matches and are the toughest opponents England have faced in the tournament, but Southgate said there was no need to think about changing their approach for the clash at Wembley. The German, Danish and Scottish national anthems were all loudly jeered by England fans at Wembley earlier in the tournament. Lots of teams in finals end up under-performing," he told a news conference. England boss Southgate is keen to avoid a repeat, both out of respect for Italy and also because he believes it would fire up Roberto Mancini’s team.

“It’s important our fans always respect the opposition,” Southgate said. This game now is a different tactical challenge and we have got to prepare properly for that," he said. Lots of teams in finals end up under-performing,” he told a news conference. “We know that when we play abroad and fans boo our anthem it inspires them more. I don’t think it will help the team. "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. “We can intimidate the team booing during the game, but it is different for the anthem. Southgate said his team need to respect the opposition but focus on their own strengths.” Subscribe to our newsletter and get news delivered to your mailbox.
