Euro 2020: Gareth Southgate says England determined 'more than ever' to take the knee after being met with boos
The comments come after some fans booed when players made the anti-racism gesture before Wednesday's warm up game against Austria.
"We feel more than ever determined to take the knee through this tournament. We accept there might be an adverse reaction and we're just going to ignore that and move forward."I think the players are sick of talking about the consequences of should they, shouldn't they. They've had enough really. As far as I'm concerned they are not going to take more questions on this through the tournament. If it happens, it happens. They're very clear. Their voices have been heard loud and clear.
"They are making their stand but they want to talk about the football and want the focus to be on the football."All of England, Scotland and Wales's Euro 2020 fixturesSouthgate was joined by midfielder Kalvin Phillips at a news conference, who said he was"confused and disappointed" by the booing.
"I think I was just happy that the boos got cancelled out by the fans cheering in the end, but I don't think it's a great situation, especially for us players," he said."All we can do is just focus on the game and speak about it afterwards. And I think the team spoke about it together and we came up with the conclusion that, regardless of what goes on around, we're still going to participate in the kneeling and I think that's a great idea." headtopics.com

Superb from Southgate and the players, anyone who doesn't get it is either stupid or something much worse. Will they be also doing the Black Power fist salute whilst they are kneeling to support Marxism? BOO AWAY CHAPS When will they be waving Palestinian flags will the FA allow it IDIOTS Obviously the fans mean nothing to this manager.
Take and get the 'Ball' into goal...never mind taking the freaking knee, meaningless and useless gesture for shallow minds...and keep politics out of sporting competitions!...👎👎 boring People aren’t booing the black players , there booing the blm Marxists I’d be more impressed if they were making a large donation towards a charity that supported young men of all colours.
BLM is now a political movement with an agenda . That has lost sight of racism . Problem is , if you boo or oppose it , you are labelled as a racist

REAL England isn’t The football supports have a right to peaceful protest Football must stay out of politics. No more kneeling. Southgate is wrong to make England players support BLM a Marxist far left political organisation. BLM want to defund the police, destroy historical statues and monuments and use violence and criminal damage in the name of protest.
But seemingly don’t care about Nike exploitation of workers or human rights in Qatar, why the silence Gareth? Does he actually know BLM in America have all run off as Marxist s do I suggest they stand on one leg as a gesture for equality. Then we will all know that they aren’t getting confused with supporting a black supremacist Marxist organisation. “Own” standing on one leg for equality. Who could argue with that?
Just remember the fans have just as much right to show their disapproval of this ridiculous act as the players do to kneel. Why. How about they concentrate on winning the tournament?
