Viewers of England’s Euro 2022 win over Germany thoroughly enjoyed Jill Scott’s foul-mouthed tirade during the game.
During the encounter at Wembley, the veteran player was seen yelling in the face of an opponent, forcing broadcasters BBC to apologise, even though the words could not be heard. The 35-year-old Manchester City midfield was seen roaring, "f*** off you f***ing pr***", after she went down to a late challenge from Sydney Lohmann.
Even though the sound could not be heard at home, commentator Robyn Cowen felt compelled to apologise to those who may have lip-read what the Sunderland-born player said: "Apologies to any lip readers. Not sure you need to be one to figure out what Jill Scott thought of that."

But fans at home relished the moment from the substitute. One wrote online: “I think the whole nation passed its lip reading stage one test with Jill Scott tonight.” Another said: “It was amazing! Especially the comment about sorry if you can lip read! We all got it .. it was fairly clear.” A third wrote: “Lip reading of Jill Scott did not leave much to the imagination + WE LOVE TO SEE IT.”
Scott came on us as a sub on the 89th minute, replacing Georgia Stanway who had been booked. Bayern Munich’s Lohmann pulled down the player, who then raged at her for the tackle.

At Wembley, Ella Toone opened the scoring in the 62nd minute – but that was before Lina Magull equalised, taking the match to extra time. Chloe Kelly's goal saw England win their first major trophy since 1966, as the subsequent celebrations had Sweet Caroline blaring through Wembley's sound system.
Scott couldn't hide her emotions after the final whistle, providing an emotional interview. "I can't believe it! It's such a privilege to be a part of this. What a day! The younger players have been fantastic, playing with freedom. The celebrations are going to be big and I don't think I'm going to sleep this week!"
