England fans boo players taking a knee before Romania friendly at Riverside Stadium

England players were again met with boos from some fans before their final Euro 2020 warm-up game at the Riverside Stadium despite a pre-match plea to support their decision to continue taking a knee.

Audible jeers were again heard ahead of the second England friendly to take place at Middlesbrough’s ground in the last four days before sections of applause broke out.

Gareth Southgate said on Saturday the England squad were “more determined than ever” to take part in the anti-racism gesture despite the jeers ahead of the friendly win over Austria on Wednesday.

The England manager said his players had “had enough” of being called on to explain their show of solidarity and added the squad would ignore any “adverse reaction”.
