Stop booing your team England! Rescue them!
The same thing happened to Canada in 1972, playing the Soviet Union in hockey. The team was being beaten and booed by the fans, until a star player, Phil Esposito, got on TV after the game and told off Canadian fans. He said that the series was not going to be a walkover, that the team was trying and that they needed the fan support.
Things swung around.
Stop booing your team England. Rescue them.
