Our national anthem.

Should the players be made to sing the national anthem?

So one thing that really irritates me, is when England players do not sing our national anthem.

In my eyes, not joining in shows a lack of passion in playing for our country. They should show a bit of pride when putting on that shirt!

If I was the England manager, they'd all have to sing it. Anyone who didn't, would not be playing the next game.

What do you think?

Think they must have seen my post before the game.

Southgate will have insisted they join in as part of his meticulous preparation and it wouldn't surprise me if we later learn he sent them for singing lessons and forced them to learn all the verses.
England are the only squad in the World Cup where all those selected play in their own national league and Southgate is systematically instilling a sense of national pride in the team and the fans - no bad thing as long as it doesn't spill over into arrogance.

As a republican,I find it rather difficult.

'Long to reign over us'?  No thanks.
