The World Cup has kicked off in Russia, with the hosts playing Saudi Arabia. England's first game is on Monday against Tunisia but already there is a social media campaign to support anyone but the English.

It seems that many Scots, Welsh and Irish fans have a deep loathing for England but there are also some English fans who do not want the national team to do well, for a variety of reasons.

The hashtag #Anyonebutengland is trending on Thursday, June 14.
