DAILY RECORD 🔵 England fans come for John McGinn as he’s brutally targeted over Watkins goad

Jubilant England fans have made a beeline for John McGinn as they take glee in rubbing the Scotland star’s nose in their last-gasp winner over the Netherlands.

Ollie Watkins thrilled a nation with his late goal which sealed Gareth Southgate’s side a second consecutive appearance in the final at the Euros. Sizzling Spain lie in wait but a section of the Three Lions support momentarily stopped chucking their beers in the sky to target McGinn. The Aston Villa captain is public enemy number one in the eyes of the trolls who couldn’t resist reminding him of his claim about club team-mate Ollie Watkins.

McGinn – riding a wave of optimism pre-tournament – claimed he wanted Watkins to get beat when playing for England. That comment rankled and giddy England fans were only too keen to bring it back to prominence after Watkins’ heroics to leave Virgil van Dijk and Co on the deck. It would be fair to say McGinn owned an, almost, supreme level of reverence in Scotland before Euro 2024, and he will be keen to restore that after a tournament to forget for both him and a sorry Scotland side who exited with a whimper.

Scotland to win? When you’re watching Scotland? »

Watkins: « Yeah. If you’re playing, I don’t want you to lose. »

McGinn: « I would want you to get beat if you were playing for England. »

Watkins: « What? Why? »

McGinn: « Mate, in Scotland right, you need to watch it on the tele. So you put on channel three, mate, it’s like all English pundits, all English commentators saying ‘us’. And you’re like: ‘We’re paying our TV licence here,’ know what I mean? Get some new pundits, new commentators and then we can maybe wnat you to do better. But it’s a rivalry mate! »

Watkins: « You’re my teammate, I want you to do well. »

McGinn: « Aye, I hope you score three and get beat 4-3. »

Watkins: « Nah. »

McGinn: « Mate, I’m just being honest with you there. »
