Martin Lewis reacts after question concerning England’s Euro 2020 appearance sparks abuse
Good Morning Britain’s guest presenter Martin Lewis addressed Saturday night’s football match between the two nations, which saw England defeat Ukraine in an epic 4-0 win. The money-saving expert noticed the latter’s nod to the winning side as Ukraine sported the English flag on their team shirts.
Taking to Twitter, Martin asked his 1.1 million followers if they could fill him as he explained he couldn’t see anything on the England kit acknowledging Ukraine.
He penned: “The Ukrainian shirts seem to have a little England flag on it to signify the game. I can’t see the same on the England shirts, anyone know if they do that?”
Following his tweet, some helpful followers explained it was customary for many teams to have their opponent’s flag on the shirts to signify the game.
During the weekend game, England’s shirts featured the letters of Ukraine instead of their national flag.

Martin replied: “It’s part of my job and outreach. I should not need to be frightened off doing it by abusive people.”
Some fans flocked to Martin’s defence after the backlash he received, as one wrote: “We just have the date and the opponent written but Ukraine seem to like to do the flags as seen in this photo for the Ukraine v Sweden game. Don’t know why people are getting upset about your question.”
Another wrote: “Unfortunately @MartinSLewis there are a minority of people who will find fault and criticise out of sheer nastiness. Please rest assured that the vast majority of people in this country think you are a great guy doing a great job, keep it up.”
A third added: “England usually have the fixture and date written on the shirt under the crest instead of a miniature opponents badge.”
Martin’s post comes days after he hit back at Lord Alan Sugar after the money-saving expert declared he wanted to punch the money-saving expert in the face.
Martin took to Twitter to react to The Apprentice star’s surprising post, which has since sparked backlash amongst fans online.
He fumed: “I don’t understand the point of this tweet or of copying me in.
“If you’re trying to start an argument I’m not biting.
“It’s unnecessary, and if I may suggest would be best for all if you deleted.”
