Heartbroken English Fans Leave A Sea Of Rubbish Behind After Devastating Loss To Croatia

The English clearly did not take a leaf out of the Japanese’s books as they left heaps of rubbish after their squad’s defeat to Croatia in the semi-final earlier.

In contrast to Japanese fans who cleaned up their seating areas in the Russian stadiums, devastated Three Lions’ fans made their way home after the 120 minutes without minding the sea of rubbish they left behind in public viewing areas.

Pictures online showed Hyde Park in London, Millennium Square in Leeds, Nottingham Castle and Castlefield Bowl in Manchester, filled with hundreds of pint cups and plastic beer bottles strewn on the ground, even the England flag.

Reports revealed that 30,000 England supporters showed up in Hyde Park to watch the match on three supersize screens.

When England scored the first point just minutes after kick-off, footage showed English fans tossing their cups in the air, drenching those beneath.

However, in contrast, after Mario Mandzukic sealed the deal for the Croats, there were no more flying beer bottles and pint cups, but only broken hearts and teary-eyed images which followed suit amidst the rubbish.

Though fans who watched the match in Devonshire Green in Sheffield displayed an exemplary behaviour as they reportedly stayed behind to do their bit in cleaning up their rubbish.

The Star UK reports, a big clean-up will begin today with the green littered with refuse sacks, cans, bottles, broken glass and other rubbish after thousands of fans had packed the park last night to watch the match on a giant screen.
