FUMING fans bizarrely blamed the BBC for the SHADOW covering a third of the Wembley pitch in England’s Euro 2020 opener.
The Three Lions had home advantage in the London sun against 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia.
But viewers were left furious as England’s left side and Croatia’s box was covered in shade.
And some blamed broadcaster BBC for the shadow and demanded they somehow fix it.
One tweeted: “Nice shadow on the pitch another blinding performance from the bbc.”
Another posted: “BBC need to sort this shadow outBBC need to sort this shadow out.”
One commented: “Can’t the BBC sort out that shadow?”
But others made fun of those accusing the BBC of being to blame for the shaded pitch.
One joked: “Seeing England supporters tweet complaints at the BBC because there’s a shadow on the pitch reminds me we deserve no good things as a nation.”
Another said: My favourite thing is people blaming the BBC for the shadow on the pitch.”

Fans also took to social media to question why Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho were not even benched.
But Southgate said: “With the two boys that are out of the squad, it’s just unfortunate we can only name 23 and we’ve had to cover certain positions.
“I don’t like the fact we’re having to leave players out of the squad in a major tournament.”
