Fan Footage Shows How Badly Joe Gomez Was Booed By England Fans

Fan Footage Shows How Badly Joe Gomez Was Booed By England Fans

Joe Gomez was relentlessly booed by England fans at Wembley Stadium last night and fan footage has revealed how loud it was.

Gomez came on as a substitute for Mason Mount as England ran out 7-0 winners against Montenegro to seal Euro 2020 qualification.

But the evening was marred by the reaction to Gomez who had been involved in an altercation with Raheem Sterling on the Monday.

Fans can be heard booing loudly with one also shouting 'You're the reason I can't see Sterling today'.

Gomez was left with scratches on his face and neck after an incident with Sterling which had spilled over from their coming together in Liverpool vs Manchester City on Sunday.

Sterling saw himself dropped from the squad on Thursday but is set to return against Kosovo on Sunday.

It was also reported that Gomez was the first person in and out of the Three Lions dressing room at full-time.

Speaking to Sky Sports per The Independent, the 49-year-old said:

"No, I don't understand it. No England player should ever be booed.

"We're a team, Joe has done nothing wrong, absolutely.

"I've made that clear earlier in the week, so I don't understand that.

"Him and Raheem are very close and the whole team are very close so we don't want to see anybody treated in that way."

Sterling took to Twitter to condemn the fans who booed Gomez, with the Manchester City winger taking full responsibility for the situation.

England ran out comfortable winners and went 5-0 up before the half-time break with Harry Kane netting a hat-trick alongside strikes from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Marcus Rashford.

An own goal from Aleksandar Sofranac plus Tammy Abraham's first England goal added to England's tally in the second half.

But the reaction to Gomez was sadly the big talking point following the game.
