ENGLAND fans have lamented a Channel 4 “curse” after Gareth Southgate’s side put in another terrible performance.
The Three Lions suffered a dismal 0-0 draw against Italy in Molineux on Saturday.
Despite dominating possession, England failed to create any significant chances in a replay of the Euro 2020 final.
And Southgate’s men have now gone three games without a win in the Nations League this month – all on Channel 4.
England lost their first game in Hungary 1-0 before drawing 1-1 with Germany on Tuesday.
Southgate came under heavy fire for his negative approach in both games.
But little has changed against a redesigned Italian squad.
And some England fans decided to target Channel 4.
The TV channel played all three Nations League games in June.
And more and more fans are feeling that England have been ‘cursed’ by having Channel 4 broadcast their games.
