Euro 2020 Final: Southgate asks England fans a favour

 Gareth Southgate has pleaded with England fans not to boo Italy's national anthem before Sunday's Euro 2020 final.

Sections of England fans have been heard booing the national anthems of Germany and Denmark during the Three Lions' knockout clashes at Wembley Stadium.

And, with 60,000 fans set to be in the building on Sunday, Southgate has asked all of the England supporters to show respect and avoid giving Roberto Mancini's team any additional motivation.

"It's important our fans always respect the opposition," Southgate said.

"We know that when we play abroad and fans boo our anthem it inspires them more. I don't think it will help the team.

"We can intimidate the team booing during the game, but it is different for the anthem."
