American fans’ chants ahead of the World Cup clash against England have sent social media into meltdown with supporters left cringing.
Known for their enthusiastic and patriotic songs, the USA fans were in a jubilant mood prior to their second group stage clash.
Gregg Berhalter’s side went into the match having failed to taste defeat in their two previous meetings with the Three Lions at the World Cup.
And fans were hopeful they could match their famous 1950 result against England by getting a win.
In a video posted by FOX, supporters at a World Cup watch party in Missouri sang in unison: “I believe that we will win!”
And in another clip that has went viral, fans outside the Al Bayt Stadium chanted: “It’s called soccer.”
Football fans weren’t impressed by their songs, as they branded it as laughable and painful to watch.
Replying to the videos on Twitter, one user said: “It’s what you expect from a country that has ‘World’ series baseball which is played in virtually no other country.”
Another remarked: “No way this is an actual chant.”
A third added: “I’ve never wanted England to score 10 goals more than now, these lot are rank.”
This fan then quipped: “Cancel the tournament immediately.”
Meanwhile one irked England supporter said: “Just physically been sick.”
One then simply stated: “They need humbling.”
Despite going into the match as favourites, England were lucky to be going into half-time on level terms.
The Americans created the better chances in the opening 45 minutes with Christian Pulisic hitting the bar, while Weston McKennie and Timothy Weah both went close.
Speaking on talkSPORT commentary, England legend Stuart Pearce said: “You can feel the confidence rising in the American ranks.
“If we don’t improve we’ll get beaten.”
