England fans will NOT get the chance to welcome back their heroes from Russia

first_img England have arguably exceeded expectations in Russia England fans will not be given the chance to welcome their heroes back home from Russia.Gareth Southgate’s men are due to arrive at Birmingham Airport tomorrow after their third place play-off defeat to Belgium. Although the tournament has ended on a losing note it has been a memorable World Cup for England where they reached their first semi-final since 1990.The campaign in Russia has captured the hearts of the nation but Southgate’s men will not see when they touch down in Blighty what it has meant to the supporters.A statement on the airport’s official Twitte page read: “Please be aware that there will be no public viewing area to see the England football team arrive home so we strongly advise the public not to come to Birmingham Airport as you will not see the team.” Please be aware that there will be no public viewing area to see the England Football team arrive home so we strongly advise the public not to come to Birmingham Airport as you will not see the team. Thank you for your cooperation. @England @BHX_Police— Birmingham Airport (@bhx_official) July 13, 2018Southgate is not in favour of an open-top bus tour to celebrate his side’s achievement in reaching the semi-finals.An FA spokesman said: “There is no planned celebration at this point.“We are not actively promoting the date, the time or even the airport they will return to.”The decision has left many fans very disappointed and some took to Twitter to vent their frustration. Everything that is wrong with this country summed up in 1 tweet!!— Tom  (@tshakes1) July 13, 2018center_img Thanks Birmingham, good to see you catching the mood of the Nation and providing wonderful customer service as usual!— Banking Baggie (@NortonBaggie) July 13, 2018 After how well the team have done, and you cant be bothered to set up somewhere where the fans can say thanks.
