- People in England set up a fundraiser for the little German fan who cried after England eliminated German in EURO 2020
- England beat Germany 2-0 on Tuesday
Germany were knocked out of the EURO 2020 on Tuesday after they were defeated by England 2-0 at Wembley stadium.
Die Mannschaft would have fancied their chances going into their last-16 clash with The Three Lions. However, they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat, with Raheem Sterling and captain Harry Kane getting on the scoresheet for Gareth Southgate’s side.
Many German fans would have been frustrated seeing their side exit the competition and it proved too much for one young German girl inside the stadium.
With Germany minutes away from exiting the competition, the TV cameras captured a young girl crying over the end results of the match.
A cheer could be heard inside the stadium from the England fans when the young girl was shown on the big screen in tears. The girl has since been trolled online.
Stan Collymore and Gary Lineker are among the big names that have condemned some of the vile tweets from England fans.
Football fans are now coming together to give something back to the young girl.
“Weʼre raising £500 to show this little German supporter that not everyone in the UK is horrible,” the page reads.
The description states, “England beat Germany in a major competition at last (well done)”.
“However, an element of social media piled in on this photo of an upset little girl. Pretty horrible – to put it mildly.
“Yes, there are more people affected by this than just this little girl but hey, this is just meant to be a token of goodwill. Yes there are other potential good causes – but I’ve picked this.
“I’d like to think that the parents of the little girl will spend this on a nice treat for her so that she knows that not everyone from the UK is horrible and that we care.
“No, I don’t think this will change the world. But it can do one thing for that little girl.”
Hughes was hoping that the page will raise £ 500 (₹ 51,000). That target has been smashed, with £ 5167 (more than ₹ 5,31,000) raised at the time of writing.
