Tyson Fury Savagely Mocks Rival Wladimir Klitschko With England vs Ukraine Message

Tyson Fury has reacted to England's 4-0 win over Ukraine - with a message aimed at former boxing rival Wladimir Klitschko.

Gareth Southgate's side ran out 4-0 winners at the Stadio Olimpico to set up a mammoth semi-final clash with Denmark on Wednesday.

Klitschko wished both teams well in a video message posted to social media on Saturday afternoon but hoped for a Ukraine win.

He didn't get his wish, but WBC champion Fury did and made reference to his win over Klitschko.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' said: "I've not seen a beatdown over Ukraine like this since Düsseldorf 28 November 2015."

Fury is currently training for his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder on July 24 and handed over all control of his social media to 'Team Fury' last month.

That sign-off was missing from this tweet however, meaning Fury might've decided to have a bit of fun.

He defeated 'Steel Hammer' in 2015 to win the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO titles.

Klitschko said in his initial message: "Hi folks, people are non-stop asking me what I think of the match today - Ukraine vs England?

"If anything is to be missed, I hope it's England's goalie as the ball flies into the net.

"Let's all watch, root for our respective countries and have fun.

"Best of luck to both teams, especially that Blue and Yellow.

"Thank you to all fans, you make these great events so special."

England took the lead inside four minutes after Harry Kane fired home from a lovely Raheem Sterling ball.

They doubled their lead a minute into the second half with Harry Maguire heading home a Luke Shaw cross.

Kane grabbed his second 50 minutes in to take his summer tally to three goals after failing to have a shot on target in the first two games.

Jordan Henderson scored his first international goal just over an hour in to emphatically seal victory.

The Liverpool man has played 62 games for his country and celebrated wildly.

Do you think England will defeat Denmark on Wednesday? Who will win Euro 2020?

Let us know in the comments.
