England Fans And Pundits Go Into Meltdown After Hungary Hammering

England Fans And Pundits Go Into Meltdown After Hungary Hammering
By Colman Stanley

England suffered their worst home defeat since 1928 after they were thrashed 4-0 by Hungary in their Nations League clash this evening.

Roland Sallai nabbed two goals with Adam Nagy and Daniel Gazdag chipping in with one each, while England's John Stones was sent off in the 82nd minute after receiving a second yellow card.

England fans have been growing restless after their recent 1-0 defeat to the same side which was followed by uninspiring draws against Germany and Italy. Today's result has sent many over the edge, and the calls for Southgate's sacking have gone into overdrive.

However, ex-England players such as Ashely Cole, Joe Cole, Jamie Carragher, and Gary Neville came to the defence of their former England teammate Southgate.

Speaking on Channel 4, Ashley Cole put most of the blame on the players, and did not hold back in his assessment of their performance.

"Too many players were off it. They’ve been held responsible before and they take it on the chin when they have haven’t performed.

"On reflection they’ll look in the mirror and know it wasn’t good enough. They did have a few excuses, but they also came up against a Hungary side who were hungry and wanted it."

Joe Cole, also with Channel 4, echoed these views.

"A shocking performance, the players were not at it and the attitude were wrong. I can understand the frustration of the fans.

"Does Gareth Southgate know what he is doing? Of course, he has taken the team to a semi-final and final but that was dreadful."

On Twitter Gary Neville called out the schedule which the players are faced with, blaming the defeat on fatigue, while Carragher also tweeted a strongly worded response to chants about Southgate heard in Wembley.
