EURO 2020

Robbie Savage has a meltdown on BBC as Wales concede vs Denmark despite a foul in build-up… and viewers are loving it


EURO 2020 fans were in hysterics after Robbie Savage held a meltdown during Wales’ 4-0 defeat to Denmark.

The former Derby County midfielder was BBC’s co-commentator for his country’s last-16 tie at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

Despite a bright start from Gareth Bale and Co, the Danes took the lead following a stunning effort from Kasper Dolberg.

Mikkel Damsgaard played a wonderful ball into the Nice forward who curled a strike into the corner from the edge of the box.

Denmark then doubled their lead shortly after the break after Neco Williams’ poor clearance was tucked home by Dolberg.

But Savage was audibly aggrieved that the goal was allowed to stand after Kieffer Moore appeared to have been fouled in the build-up.

He said: “It was a foul but terrible defending. There’s the foul…HOW was that not a foul?

“Surely that’s gotta be checked! It’s a foul but they still gotta defend better than this.”

However rather than gaining sympathy Savage’s comments delighted fans at home who shared their joy on social media.

One fan tweeted: “Robbie Savage’s head is rolling. Love to see it”.

Another said: “Robbie Savage will have “how is that not a foul?” on his gravestone.”

A third added: “Drink Everytime savage says “how is that not a foul””.

One more commented: “Robbie Savage crying about the foul is making my Saturday so much better.”
