He tweeted: “Bottom line: Scotland wanted it more than England & played with more fire, intensity, passion and drive.

“You can’t teach footballers those qualities. It’s about hunger & heart.”

Alongside the clip, which showed Morgan standing in the crowd with his arms aloft, Spencer wrote: “They will let literally anyone in here.”
