England vs Slovenia was pretty rubbish, wasn’t it?

The 1-0 win saw the Three Lions qualify for the World Cup in Russia and that’s exactly why England fans travelled to Wembley.

But they would have been bitterly disappointed as Gareth Southgate’s men could only scape a narrow win thanks to Harry Kane's late goal.

Everyone watching at home had the luxury of being able to change channel or do something entirely different.

Unfortunately, those watching inside the stadium could do very little but watch on in despair.

As the first-half came and went, the supporters must have been getting more and more bored.

But in the second-half, they were entertained.

Not by what was happening on the pitch because that was still a load of rubbish.

If you were still watching on TV in the second-half, you may have heard the crowd keep cheering every now and then.


The reason?

Paper airplanes.

No, seriously.

Some England fans decided to fly some paper airplanes and, when they eventually found the pitch, the supporters cheered as if England had scored a goal.

Watch: England fans entertain themselves

Just take a look at one example:

Quite brilliant.

You can’t blame the England fans for losing interest and trying to entertain themselves. A

And those people that can find the pitch from the second tier at Wembley, we salute you.

Some would say they’re more talented than the England players on the pitch…
