Gareth Southgate has pushed England fans are told not to “embarrass” the nation as the Three Lions prepare for Germany in Munich, insisting crowding issues are having an “impact” on the players.

Almost 3,500 England fans have tickets for Tuesday’s Nations League game at the Allianz Arena and more are expected to travel without tickets.

England fans faced backlash after singing World War Two songs at their last game in Germany, and tomorrow’s game comes just a day after the D-Day anniversary.

With more than 100 arrests during England’s 2018 trip to Amsterdam, the FA are aware of the possibility of mass trouble in Germany and are dispatching additional stewards and specialist spotters to identify troublemakers.

Asked about the behavior of England fans ahead of his team’s trip to Germany, Southgate said: “I think we know from the scenery at the moment that the spotlight will be on.

“So let’s all come home and talk about a brilliant night, good football and a stunning atmosphere. All we can ask is that our backers deliver.

‘[Crowd trouble] definitely has an impact [on the players]. Employees work on things that distract from the main part of their work. You feel embarrassed when you hear about this because you know it is a representative of your country.

“I think we can only get the right messages across, then you have to be able to rely on people to behave.

“We have fans from all parts of the country who travel brilliantly and leave foreign countries with a great feeling for England and for English fans.

“We also know that there have always been others who have done it differently, and that has been the case for over 40 years.”
