Germany’s tweet about the Euros 2020 match has been dubbed ‘harsh’ by England fans.

Football is known to bring out the worst in people, but some presumed Germany’s team had taken it a step too far by tweeting: “Die Engländer.”

Of course, this actually translates as ‘The English,’ yet Twitter users have mocked the post.

One football fan said: “Nah man, it ain’t that deep.”

Pitching in, another added: “It’s just a football match mate, there’s no need to kill people.”

“Bit harsh lads, it’s just a game. Sheesh,” a third joked.

During the match, Harry Kane wore a rainbow armband in support of Pride Month.

Confirming the move, England’s official Twitter account posted: “@hkane will join @dfb_team’s Manuel Neuer in wearing a rainbow captain’s armband for tomorrow’s game at @wembleystadium to mark the end of Pride Month, as the #ThreeLions stand in allyship with LGBTQ+ communities around the world.”

The news comes after the UEFA blocked a plan from Germany that would allow the Allianz Area to light up in rainbow colours during the first two group games.

Reportedly, the governing body felt that it would come off as a ‘political’ statement.

Despite the decision, the players were allowed to wear rainbow armbands in support, as Christian Rudolph (a board member of the German Lesbian and Gay Federation) blasted the UEFA’s move.

He said: “That is unacceptable. It is a fatal sign. We are currently in Pride Month and at the most important sporting event of the month. Should the wearing of a rainbow captain’s armband be prevented?

“UEFA also needs to think about who it represents. How should the athletes think about it now? We are committed to open football.”
