England 2-0 Germany: Fundraiser set up for young girl who cried during Euro 2020 game

A fundraiser has been set up for a young German girl who cried during England loss

Germany crashed out of Euro 2020 on Tuesday evening after being defeated by England at Wembley.

Die Mannschaft would have fancied their chances going into their last-16 clash with The Three Lions.

But they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat, with Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane getting on the scoresheet for Gareth Southgate’s side.

Many German fans would have been frustrated at seeing their side exit the competition.

And it proved too much for one young German girl inside the stadium.

German fans during the England loss

With Germany minutes away from exiting the competition, the TV cameras captured a young girl crying about the result.

A cheer could be heard inside the stadium from the England fans as she was shown on the big screen in tears. The girl has since been trolled online.

Stan Collymore and Gary Lineker are among the big names that have condemned some of the vile tweets from England fans.

Football fans are now coming together to give something back to the young girl.

England beat Germany 2-0 at Wembley

Joel Hughes has set up a fundraiser which is raising money for the girl.

“Weʼre raising £500 to show this little German supporter that not everyone in the UK is horrible,” the page reads.

“England beat Germany in a major competition at last (well done),” the description starts.

“However, an element of social media piled in on this photo of an upset little girl. Pretty horrible – to put it mildly.

“Yes, there are more people affected by this than just this little girl but hey, this is just meant to be a token of goodwill. Yes there are other potential good causes – but I’ve picked this.

“I’d like to think that the parents of the little girl will spend this on a nice treat for her so that she knows that not everyone from the UK is horrible and that we care.

“No, I don’t think this will change the world. But it can do one thing for that little girl.”

Hughes was hoping that the page will raise £500. That target has been smashed, with £5167 raised at the time of writing. Over 500 people have donated.
