The 53-year-old is under pressure after his side failed to win their Euro 2024 clash on Tuesday night

Angry England fans on social media have called for Gareth Southgate to be sacked after their goalless draw with Slovenia on Tuesday night.

The Three Lions topped their group with the result, with Denmark and Slovenia playing out a goalless draw on the same night.


For the third match in a row, however, England were poor.

They managed just four shots on target throughout the clash, despite boasting 73 per cent of possession.

Southgate has a talented squad at his disposal, something that can't be denied.

But the 53-year-old is failing when it comes to getting the best from them, with England no longer the favourites to go all the way this summer.

And angry fans on social media have called for Southgate to be sacked right now, despite the former Middlesbrough boss guiding his team to third in the group.

"@England sack this clown already before he embarrasses this nation anymore the standards of this nation is a joke not only should Southgate be sack but the people who decided to hire him and allow this circus to go on longer than it had any right to should be sacked as well," fumed one X user.

A second said: "Sack Southgate and let's win the tournament without a manager."

A third said: "Sack Southgate now."

A fourth weighed in by saying: "Southgate is so bad....can we sack him and bring some one else for the remaining games?"

Another raged: "Just send that England squad home and sack Southgate END OF."

And a sixth blasted the England boss by saying: "Sack him now, 3 incredibly inept performances, get Southgate out! #SouthgateOut."

Southgate had said before the game he was 'oblivious' to the negativity surrounding his side and their Euro 2024 displays.

But the noise is about to grow significantly louder, despite England qualifying as group winners.

Southgate stood on the pitch applauding England fans at full time.

He will know, however, that things must get better if he's to finally win a major tournament with the side.

It was a match of few chances, though England did see an early goal from Bukayo Saka chalked off for offside.

Former England defender Conor Coady, meanwhile, believes fans have every right to be concerned about the team.

"I think all of the England supporters are worried with what they're seeing," he said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

"We wanted this to be the game where England arrived on this huge stage and say, 'England are finally here!'

"We haven't seen that. There was nothing in the game to suggest that.

"There were a few half chances and the bright cameo from Cole Palmer but aside from that it was more of the same."
