England Fans Flood Social Media With #SouthgateOut Posts After Poor First Half Vs Hungary

Frustrated England fans are calling for Gareth Southgate's head after another poor display.

The current international break has not been a productive one for England, with a defeat to Hungary and draws with Germany and Italy respectively in the end of season run-in.

The Three Lions lost 2-0 against Hungary at Molineux on Tuesday evening following Roland Sallai's double.

It was another disappointing performance in the UEFA Nations League, a competition in which England are still searching for their first win.

And a strong section of supporters have turned against Southgate, the man who guided England to the World Cup semi-finals and the Euro 2020 final last year.

The hashtag #SouthgateOut was used commonly on social media during the drab outing against Hungary, with plenty of fans wanting a change of manager:

Southgate's deal with England had been due to expire after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar but he signed an extension fairly recently, keeping him in the Three Lions hotseat until December 2024.

But while the former Middlesbrough boss got England fans believing again and hasn't been afraid to talk about important social and cultural issues, it seems many feel he is negative tactically and is stunting the team's progression as a result.

Plenty want Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter to replace Southgate.

In a poll SPORTbible did to see who fans wanted as the next manager, Potter was the comfortable winner with 39.2% of the votes.

In his column for the Times, Henry Winter wrote many within the England set-up see Potter, who guided Brighton to ninth last season, as the "obvious long-term successor" to Southgate.
