“Liam Gallagher consoled Gareth Southgate after Euro ’96 penalty miss”

Speaking on BBC 5 Live, Andy Townsend revealed that the first person to console Gareth Southgate after his penalty miss against Germany at Wembley in 1996, was Liam Gallagher.

According to Townsend, Gallagher told Southgate: “Don’t fucking worry about it because at least you had the bollocks to go up and take it, those other fuckers, they didn’t want to fucking know.”
“He literally said that, and I said [to Southgate]: ‘Actually, in as many words mate that was what I was going to tell you!’
