“He’s wearing an England shirt and you should not just support a player in an England shirt, but if you’ve played at the level he’s been for us and brought in his performances, it should be his total commitment behind him. I don’t get it at all.

“His performance was really quite flawless. He played very well from behind in the first goal and was involved in the second. So yes. The team is totally united.”

Southgate added: “We know everyone has difficult moments but he’s a top player and he’ll get through it.

“They are real England fans and some are influenced by whatever – by social media or players who have played before and influence opinion.

“I remember decades ago a couple of players in an England shirt were booed and that was never acceptable to me. Fans should always stand behind their team.”
