TV figures show 19.4 million UK viewers watched England’s defeat to France in Qatar.

On Saturday, 21.31 million viewers tuned in to ITV (and +1) to watch the World Cup 2022 quarter-final match.

After losing 2-1 to France, England was eliminated from the tournament.

Television viewing figures are measured in several ways, and broadcasters can also release statistics for peak one-minute viewing, which often reflects the highest numbers.

The Three Lions were pictured looking solemn on Sunday as they headed back to the UK following their defeat.

Captain Harry Kane said on Twitter he was “absolutely gutted” after missing a penalty that would have meant England would have leveled up 2-2 to France.

He also scored an earlier penalty which took England to 1-1 after France took an early lead in the game when Aurélien Tchouaméni scored in the 17th minute.

Millions of fans have tuned in to watch England throughout the winter World Cup.

An average UK audience of 7.4 million people watched England beat Iran 6-2 in their first match on BBC One on Monday 21 November, according to Barb.

And an average UK audience of 16.59 million TV viewers tuned in for England’s 3-0 win over Wales on BBC One on Tuesday 29 November.
