England fans take aim at Gareth Southgate after Three Lions boss equals 25-year benchmark in Poland draw


England’s supporters have taken to social media in numbers this evening, to take aim at manager Gareth Southgate.

Kane’s screamer not enough

The Three Lions were of course back in action a short time ago.

After getting the better of both Hungary and Andorra by 4-goal margins over the course of the last week, Southgate and co. headed to Poland, aiming to keep their flawless 2022 World cup qualifying campaign alive.

The individual in question? Gareth Southgate.

And it is this very decision which has since resulted in the tactician being targeted by the English faithful, with just some of the social media backlash showcased below:
