Channel 4 slammed after Gareth Southgate’s post-match interview was cut from England’s defeat by Italy

Fans were quick to criticize Channel 4 on Friday night after their coverage of the English Nations League clash with Italy was paused to make way for Gogglebox.

The interruption came during Gareth Southgate’s post-match interview after the Three Lions lost 1-0 at the San Siro in Milan.

Giacomo Raspadori’s second-half goal was enough to bring the visitors down as they struggled to break Italy.

England have not won any of their last five games and have just one more game to play before the start of the World Cup this winter, but it was the scheduling that angered fans the most.

“Just when you don’t think it could get much worse Channel 4 isn’t showing us the interview with Southgate,” one fan tweeted.

“We need to go straight to the people who are cheering their dogs on and eating muffins in front of the TV on Gogglebox.”

Another suggested football should be “taken off Channel 4”, saying of Southgate: “We want to hear the wetwipe talk.”

Disbelief was widespread, with one tweet reading: “Channel 4 doesn’t show Southgate’s post-game interview until after midnight because they have to show Gogglebox? Put it back on the BBC where it belongs.’

Others called the coverage “s***” and said they were “not sure which was worse” between England’s defeat and Gogglebox.

Southgate’s men will have a chance to partially redeem themselves when they take on Germany on Monday night. It’s their last chance before the World Cup to get their first win since March.
