Piers Morgan takes swipe at rival BBC Breakfast as he brands England’s second half ‘dull’
Piers Morgan is never one to shy away from sharing his thoughts and Tuesday night was no different as he aired his views on England’s performance. However, the presenter’s latest tweet saw the ex news anchor attack his former opposition as well as both the English and Czech Republic national teams.
The former Good Morning Britain co-anchor, 56, was left less than impressed by England’s second half.
It comes after Manchester City midfielder Raheem Sterling, 26, scored the winning goal in an exciting first half, that will see England face either France, Portugal or Germany in the next round.
While many fans were furious that Jack Grealish, 25, had been subbed, the Aston Villa ace played a crucial role in helping his teammate score the winning goal, carrying the ball down the line before passing to Sterling who scored with a header.
However, despite showering Jack with praise, Piers was left feeling somewhat bewildered at the end of the game.

In view of his 7.9 million Twitter followers, he penned: “Football is a game of two halves. In this case, the first was very exciting – and the second so dull I’d rather watch @BBCBreakfast. #ENGCZE.”
The post that has generated over 2,700 likes was instantly flooded with messages from fans who shared the same thoughts as Piers.
“It’s actually depressing. Football, whether playing or watching, is about having fun. This is horrible. It’s the English mentality in sport… Play not to lose rather play to win,” said one.
While a second added: “No shots in the second half until around 80th minute. Is it just me or are England the most boring team to watch in this tournament?”
“This is an unexciting England team that can’t seem to get out of first gear! If this is how Southgate is hoping he can progress through the competition against the top teams he is sadly mistaken,” tweeted a third.
Before a fourth penned: “Yes the second half was utter rubbish. The first was OK [but] I’m not getting that excited about it. Still we will be out next week the usual will happen the opposition will be too strong. We haven’t got goals in us.”
Later in the evening, Piers said: “Win’s a win, top of the group is top of the group, first-half performance was good & @BukayoSaka87 was superb – so a few positives from the game.
“But let’s face it – we’re going to have to play a lot better than that to beat France, Germany or Portugal…. #Euros.”

He went on to say that Grealish and Bukayo Saka had “electrified” the national team.
Following Grealish’s impressive move to help England land a goal, Piers said: “That’s why Grealish has to start every game. He makes things happen.”
England’s victory last night saw the team qualify as winners from Group D, meaning they will play at Wembley in the last 16.
Their opponents from Group F, France, Germany or Portugal, will be confirmed tonight after the group play in their final group stage match.
Shortly after their opponents are confirmed, England will commence preparations to face their opponents at Wembley Stadium next Tuesday.
Last week, Piers urged football fans to “get a life” after “wokies” disagreed with the England team singing the national anthem.
Following England v Croatia, Piers was left disgruntled as fans hit out against God Save The Queen being sung before national matches.
However, those who complained about the national anthem certainly left Piers furious as he enjoyed the game.
In a state of rage, Piers tweeted: “Great to see the whole England team belting out the National Anthem. And to all wokies now screaming in horror at this ‘disgusting celebration of colonial imperialism.”
He added: “Get a life, you tedious morons. God save the Queen!”
