Fans all say the same thing as England crash out of World Cup at the quarter-final stage in gutting France loss on ITV

ENGLAND fans have all been left saying the same thing after England crashed out of the World Cup against France.

Harry Kane missed a late penalty to equalise a second time for the Three Lions.

And it meant England crashed out to Olivier Giroud’s powerful second half header.

But fans were quick to highlight one peculiar superstition regarding the broadcaster of the event – ITV.

The broadcaster’s record when playing England games in the past is less than stellar, and despite overcoming it against Senegal fans were convinced the curse reared its ugly head again tonight.

One fan said: “ITV curse once more.”

A second user said: “Can ITV do the country a favour and stop broadcasting England’s matches, they’re clearly a curse.”

A third said: “Never let ITV show an England game again please I beg.”

Another said: “The ITV curse strikes again. At this point they need to just f*** it off & let BBC cover it all.”

“Can we agree now that the BBC have full rights of all future tournaments please… The ITV curse continues…,” another pleaded.


Another declared: “#ITVCurse ruins Christmas.”

George Lineker, the brother of BBC presenter and former England ace Gary said: “Kane would have score if it was on BBC.”

The curse itself dates back to 1998, with England playing 30 games on the broadcaster in that time.

Out of those 30 games, the Three Lions have won just SEVEN times.

They have lost 10 and drawn 13 on the channel, including the quarter-final.
