Gareth Southgate’s England selection came in for a barrage of criticism after a lacklustre display against Scotland in a Euro 2020 group stage clash at Wembley.
Scotland secured their first point of the tournament with a 0-0 draw against England on Friday night in both sides’ second Group D match.
While Steve Clarke’s players took the game to the hosts, the opposition were considerably slow, dull and underwhelming in the much-hyped game between the auld rivals.
Here are the best of the tweets and jokes after England 0-0 Scotland as Southgate’s charges manage just one shot on target:
A plucky England side managed to hold on for a draw at Wembley. #ENGSCO

I think my favourite type of music is the sweet, sweet sound of England fans booing another one of their teams they've accidentally overhyped again. #ENGSCO

If I turned up to work and put in as little effort as the England team I'd get sacked. #itsnotcominghome

About England wining euros… we wouldn’t win home nations

On the football phone-ins, to answer the fuming England fans, they need someone to say “It’s not football you’re angry about is it? Take a breath, Dave, and tell me why your father never hugged you.”

As an Englishman living in Scotland, 0-0 was the disappointment I was hoping for. #EngSco
