English fans have not held back in their criticism of Gareth Southgate after Friday’s 1-0 loss to Italy in Milan.

The Three Lions are now winless in their last five games, their longest drought in eight years.

It comes at a bad time for Southgate, with England set to play just one more game before the World Cup in Qatar this winter.

“I really don’t understand how Southgate continues as England manager ahead of this World Cup,” one fan tweeted. ‘Ultra defensive and we have been discovered en masse. The FA needs a bold move or we will go back to our old ways of being eliminated in the round of 16.

Others felt the loss ‘summed up Southgate’ and was ‘so dull compared to the lionesses!’

Supporters felt the manager had been too ‘predictable’ in choosing a ‘boring team’ and argued that ‘even the players have had enough’.

“Poor football, too defensive, no emotion, poor choice of formation,” added another.

Some fans have called for a change in management ahead of this winter's World Cup.

There were a number of calls for Southgate to be replaced immediately, with tweets demanding that the FA “take Southgate out tonight” and saying “he’s not good enough and we won’t win anything”.

He’s had a lot of time, he’s picking players who don’t even play regularly for their clubs and players out of shape. The guy is lost. I hope they fire him.

Criticism on this scale will be rare for a manager who has taken England to the latter stages of both major tournaments he has managed them in, but the Three Lions’ recent form has been worrying.

If they fail to beat Germany on Monday, England will enter the World Cup having not won a match since March.
