England's friendly against Romania was interrupted by a streaker – who put his Covid-19 mask on while being led away.

The Three Lions limped to a 1-0 win against the eastern European side, the last warm-up match before their Euro 2020 campaign gets underway on June 13.

Gareth Southgate's side found it difficult to break down Romania's defence, hitting only three shots on target from an attempted 10.

And it meant the moment of the game which drew the biggest reaction from the 8,000 supporters at Middlesbrough's Riverside ground.

The bloke was seen running from England's attacking end of the pitch after half an hour of play.

He was greeted with a mixture of cheers and jeers as he ran topless across the pitch while followed by a security guard.

After being caught by the stewards, though, the spectator did decide to pull a Covid mask over his face as he was led away.

England were being held to a 0-0 draw at the time, hitting the bar through Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jadon Sancho in the first half.

And it took a driving run by Aston Villa's Jack Grealish after 67 minutes to win a penalty against Romania.

Manchester United star and captain for the game Marcus Rashford stepped up to cooly slot into the bottom-right corner.

Calvert-Lewin won a second penalty 10 minutes later but Liverpool star Jordan Henderson's effort was saved.

But the game was marred at the start of the game when a group of spectators booed as the players took the knee against racism.

Manager Southgate revealed on Saturday that the squad would continue to take the knee despite the disappointing reaction in last week's game with Austria.

England's Euro 2020 campaign begins on June 13 at Wembley against Croatia before taking on Scotland and Czech Republic in the group.
