The Three Lions take on Germany in a huge Euro 2020 last-16 clash on Tuesday evening.

A report from the Telegraph claims the FA will 'strongly condemn' fans who choose to sing 'discriminatory and disrespectful' songs inside the stadium.

Complaints have already been submitted to UEFA, with fans believed to have sung the song during a 1-0 win over Croatia earlier this month.

Per the Telegraph, the FA state: "We always encourage our fans to positively get behind the team, and this includes supporting England in the right way, before, during and after the match.

"This message will be shared with them once again before Tuesday's fixture, as well as thanking them for their support.

"We will also strongly condemn any behaviour at Wembley Stadium that is discriminatory or disrespectful, and we will take action where appropriate as we try to ensure all England matches are a safe and enjoyable experience."

The song, which is to the tune of She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain, is in reference to the Second World War.

England played Germany twice in 2017 and fans were banned from the England Supporters Travel Club after singing the song in Dortmund in March of that year.

Manager Gareth Southgate urged fans to move on and condemned the chant.

He said: "It's unacceptable, completely unacceptable. We've moved on from those times, or should have moved on from those times. They don't represent us as a team, the people who do that."

Next week's clash promises to be England's toughest test of the tournament so far after qualifying top of Group D.

2014 World Cup winners Germany finished second in Group F and drew their last game 2-2 with Hungary.

Joachim Low isn't worried about his side's form however and is looking forward to the contest.

Per Sky Sports, the outgoing coach said: "I'm not worried, it's a totally different match. Hungary parked the bus, with everyone behind the ball, entered every duel, against England it will be a totally different match.

"They are playing at home, they want to attack, it's going to be an open match, more open than it was tonight. We need to improve on things, we are aware of that, and need to take care and be careful, especially at set-pieces.

"We cannot repeat the same mistakes again. We need to do things better here, but ahead of the match against England, we're looking forward to it.

"It's great news to play in London at Wembley against England. The group stage is over and now we have to focus. It's in or out now.

"Our performance so far hasn't been too good, but if we show what we can, as we did against Portugal for long spells, we can be a strong opponent, and if we don't do that we can get into difficulties."
