Joe Gomez booed by England supporters

Joe Gomez booed by England supporters

Gomez was booed by some sections of the home support during his brief substitute appearance at Wembley, causing Sterling to take to social media to defend his global team-mate.

His Liverpool team mate Gomez was booed by some fans when he entered as a substitute in that match, following a bust-up with Raheem Sterling on Monday, and misses the trip to Kosovo after sustaining a knee injury in training on Friday.

Sterling watched England secure qualification for the Euro 2020 finals from the stands, but took to social media after hearing some fans target Gomez with booing.

In a statement penned to England fans, Sterling declared that his global team-mate had done nothing wrong.

Harry Kane may have scored a hat-trick against Montenegro but it was Leicester's Chilwell who was named England's man of the match following a fine display in which he provided three assists in the opening 24 minutes.

"I then spoke to Joe privately about how he was feeling".

"I've taken full responsibility and accepted the outcome".

The article goes on to add that Mandzukic reportedly hasn't trained with the Juve first-team squad since October due to an arrangement with Sarri.

Manager Gareth Southgate also condemned the supporters who jeered the defender.

"Again, first and foremost, the whole dressing room are disappointed with it because the dressing room are tight, every one of them".

"So, all of the players are particularly disappointed with that, and the reason
that I wanted to get Joe on the pitch tonight was that he's been with us in September and October and we've not got him into the games". He put out a tweet and apologised to Joe and has taken not playing on the chin.

"Joe had done absolutely nothing wrong".

'It is clear if we remember the first game in England, if Sterling has so much space it is impossible to stop him because what he did in that game, it was 460 metres with high intensity.

"We are always learning about the players more in the really big matches and the really high-pressure games", Southgate said.

Southgate's side have racked up 33 goals - three more than the next most potent side Belgium, who have played one more game - and Challandes pointed to that statistic as proof of England's current standing.
