CHANTS: Songs directed at Germany could land England fans in hot water

As Three Lions face the World Cup winners at Wembley from 8pm tonight, pre-game talk has veered towards the behaviour of English footie fans on the eve of Remembrance Day.

When the bitter rivals faced off in March earlier this year, a number of fans were banned after some of the travelling support sang anti-German songs in reference to World Wars 1 and 2.

One of these was the “10 German bombers chant” that references enemy planes shot down at the height of the battles.

After Daily Star Online asked the FA about the punishment planned for fans caught singing anti-German war-related songs, a spokesman said fans’ details would be passed to the police if severe enough.

He added they would be ejected from the ground immediately and, if found to be members of the England Supporters Club or England Supporters Travel Club, banned from the organisations.

It comes after England manager Gareth Southgate slammed the small number of fans who were found guilty of the chants during March’s game.


“It’s unacceptable. Completely unacceptable”

He said: “It’s unacceptable. Completely unacceptable.

“We have a huge percentage of fans who follow us brilliantly. We experienced that in Lithuania.

“But there is an element, with the things that were shouted that night, that are unacceptable.

“We’ve moved on from those times. But we’re talking about individuals. The mass majority of supporters are brilliant.

“Germany have taken a huge step in agreeing to wear the poppy in this fixture, so that should be noted and we appreciate that.”
