Fikayo Tomori reacts to AC Milan fan Gareth Southgate’s X-rated chant following his latest shock snub by the Englishman ahead of Euro 2024


Fikayo Tomori couldn’t suppress a wry smile after hearing an AC Milan fan chant an X-rated chant at Gareth Southgate.

The centre-back was not selected in Southgate’s 33-man provisional England squad ahead of Euro 2024 despite his eye-catching form in Serie A.

The group will be reduced to 26 for the tournament, but Tomori, along with Marcus Rashford and Ben Chilwell, were surprise omissions.

Tomori, who made his international debut in 2019, last appeared for the Three Lions in November 2023 and looks set to fall under Southgate’s pecking order.

While touring Australia with Milan, Tomori was caught on camera listening to fans venting their frustrations and couldn’t help but laugh.

Showing their feelings, they chanted: ‘We love you Tomori, dammit Southgate.’

Tomori, 26, tried his best to remain professional as he signed shirts but was seen comically shaking his head and smiling as the chants grew.

The centre-back has just five England caps to his name to date.

He admitted his frustration with his lack of international minutes last year.

«Most players say once you come here you want to stay, and when you get the hang of it, you want to keep going,» Tomori said.

“My England career was a bit of a stop-start.

“When I was first called up I made a few appearances off the bench and then after the COVID year I didn’t play as much, obviously I wasn’t called up.

«Then I went to Milan and I was in several camps, in several non-camps.

“But this season started off really well and I was able to play a few games and come to every camp.
