Hundreds of England supporters gathered in Sunderland's Park Lane watched on in horror as their country went out of Euro 2016 after losing to Iceland.
Roy Hodgson's men went in 2-1 at half-time, but could not get back level.
Fans in Sunderland's Park Lane watched the match on a giant screen set up by city business bosses for the tournament.
A huge groan of despair went up as the final whistle blew.
Hodgson has now resigned from his post after more than four years in the job.
England fan Shaun Wathey, 28, who lives near Sunderland city centre, said: "With this squad we should be doing a lot better.
"We've got young players and keep the ball well but it just hasn't worked.
"Harry Kane hasn't turned up but others haven't played well either. It's typical England."
