Gareth Southgate when asked about the incident, he reacted in a positive way that the opposition was being singled out instead of their own men. Southgate did not condemn his side’s supporters instead connected the incident with the World Cup qualifier in Malta in 2017.
Southgate added that he is glad to hear England supporters booed opposition players rather than voicing frustration against their own team. ‘We are making progress.’
In response, Joe Gomez had questioned the mentality of those who had picked over his Liverpool teammate. He added that he had not seen him do anything wrong.
Gomez said, “We get on the ball and play the same way. I don’t see the relevance with it. Maybe they were just following on. I don’t think it affected us or the way we play as a team.”
