England are facing increasing calls to be banned from the 2022 World Cup over the fan violence which marred their Euro 2020 final defeat against Italy on Sunday night.
The Three Lions came up short in their first ever European Championship final appearance, losing out on penalties after Leonardo Bonucci cancelled out Luke Shaw's early opener.
However, the heartbreaking result was not the only negative for England, as before the game there were ugly scenes when ticketless fans clashed with police and security while trying to storm Wembley.
Kings Cross also had to be evacuated before the game due to fireworks while bottles were thrown, windows were smashed and arrests were made elsewhere in the capital.
As a result, a number of people are calling for England to be banned from next year's World Cup in Qatar, taking to Twitter to lambast the fans' behaviour before Sunday's final.
One wrote: "I Hope England get banned for the World Cup and the next Euros for the fans behaviour tonight absolutely disgusting".

Another said: "England should be banned from participating in the World Cup next year. Treat the fans like the children they are and take it away from them.'
A third commented: "Embarrassed to be British! If that’s how England fans behave, it does NOT deserve to ‘come home’. But we DO deserve to be banned from the World Cup! Maybe that’ll teach the hooligans a lesson! Or not".
While one concluded: "England should be banned from the World Cup next year for the continuous behaviour of their fans!"
England got off to a flying start in Sunday's final, with Shaw breaking the deadlock after just two minutes.
But with just over 20 minutes remaining Leonardo Bonucci drew Italy level, sending the game to extra-time and then penalties.

Andrea Belotti missed first for Italy, only for Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho to squander their efforts and put the Azzurri in the driving seat.
Jordan Pickford then denied Jorginho the chance to win it, yet Bukayo Saka's miss straight after handed Italy the trophy and sealed England's fate.
