Cheeky schoolkids BOO Germany team as they arrive at London hotel for England Euro 2020 showdown
CHEEKY schoolkids booed the Germany team as they arrived at their London hotel.
Joachim Low and his side landed in the capital on Monday ahead of this evening's Euro 2020 showdown at Wembley.
But there were given a frosty reception from a bunch of children as they went to check in, with the kids also chanting 'who are ya' at the 2014 world champions.
However, the Germans did not appear too unnerved by the youngsters – and can expect plenty more of the same under the Arch later with 45,000 in the stands at the home of football.
Die Mannschaft were due to arrive from Nuremberg Airport and then train on the Wembley pitch.
But the heavy rain in London meant Uefa blocked their session to protect the turf.
Instead, Germany made their final preparations at their Herzogenaurach base back home yesterday morning before the flight.
German newspaper Bild described the disruption as a 'scandal'.
To make matters worse, Low faces the prospect of being without three key players as a bug swept through the camp for what could be his last game in charge of the national team.
Ilkay Gundogan, Antonio Rudiger and Robin Gosens all face races against time to be fit for the game – and the manager will not know until late on Tuesday about their availability.

England and Germany will play out the latest instalment of their old rivalry from 5pm today.
Coverage on BBC One starts from 4pm, soon after the team news will be confirmed.
Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell look set to be in contention after serving their self-isolation period.
Bukayo Saka is expected to retain his starting spot while Gareth Southgate could go with a back three.
The Three Lions boss has called on his troops to secure their status as legends.
Southgate said: “Every time you pull an England shirt on you have the opportunity to score a goal that will be shown forever and to create a bit of skill or be involved in a match that lives on in the memory.
“That’s the beauty of playing for your country.
"If you think of all the big players in history, there are significant memories in club football, European football.
“But when you picture those great players, it’s normally in an international shirt that their biggest memories are formed.
“That is the case every time you pull on an England shirt. It is an opportunity that few get and these lads have earned it."
