Emmerdale fans had tuned in to see tonight's episode at 7.30pm but were confronted with the nail-biting football match instead.
And live reaction from the studio meant Coronation Street didn't air at 8pm as expected either – pushing the soaps later into the evening.
One viewer wrote: "And there was me looking forward to #Emmerdale" while another tweeted: "Where emmerdale bloody football."
However, several fans pointed out all episodes are available to watch in advance online.
One tweeted the complaining fans: "It ain’t that deep tbf you could just watch today’s Emmerdale and Corrie now on the ITV Hub."
The broadcaster revealed in June that the two ITV soaps will drop their entire week's episodes online on the Mondays during the football tournament.
They followed a move pioneered by the BBC with EastEnders after soap fans were short-changed during previous tournaments.
The Corporation revealed today that the move would be extended until August for the Tokyo Olympics.
