England Fans React To ‘Tone Deaf’ Singing Of Gareth Southgate And Players

England Fans React To ‘Tone Deaf’ Singing Of Gareth Southgate And Players

Passionless, talentless, woefully hilarious: England's display against Wales has been panned by the fans.

However we don't mean the performance on the pitch in a convincing 3-0 win, but the England players' pre-match national anthem. It was a version of 'God Save The Queen' so bad that even Her Majesty would be begging for them to stop.

It's safe to say none of the England players are natural singers, with fans on Twitter describing it as "painful" and "tone deaf".

Clearly none of these lads will be making an appearance on The X Factor should it return. Manager Gareth Southgate set the bar low with his one-pitch monotone, before Jack Grealish, Danny Ings, Michael Keane and Nick Pope honked in awful unison.

Kieran Trippier stole the show, however, as he suddenly realised the camera was on him and gave a warbling off-key flourish to finish. Marvellous stuff.

Most on Twitter saw the funny side, appreciating that the England players are footballers rather than professional singers. Although some oddballs were naturally furious (because Twitter).

Still, it wasn't pleasant listening and safe to say we've never missed a full (or half-full) Wembley helping the players by singing along and drowning out this 11-man choral monstrosity.

Ian Wright was also present as an ITV pundit and, if it wasn't for the current restrictions, we'd have wanted the former England striker to run down on to the pitch and show them how it's done: belting out the anthem with the energy he used to show.

Still, the players should probably be grateful nobody turned to Roy Keane for his analysis of the horrendous singing. We suspect he'd make a peak Simon Cowell look like a pussycat.

So do the England players need singing lessons? Or should we just endure their appalling vocals and admit they will never make Christmas No 1? Let us know in the comments.
