Things took a turn though when that same fan grabbed the microphone and said: “More importantly: free Palestine!"
The fans then walked off and left the reporter looking visibly uncomfortable with the comment.
The clip has gone viral on social media, and it sparked a huge reaction last night.
“English fans consistently screaming ‘free Palestine’ to Israeli reporters is really incredible,” one wrote.
Owen Jones wrote: “This English fan who told an Israeli station ‘But more importantly - free Palestine!’ should never have to buy his own pint ever again.”
Another said: “Israeli reporters in Qatar really is the gift that keeps giving.”
The clip went viral after Gareth Southgate’s England scored two goals late in the first half against Senegal, courtesy of Jordan Henderson and Harry Kane to take the game away from the African champions, before Bukayo Saka added a third early in the second.
They’ll now play defending champions France in the quarter final on Saturday.
