Another fan, @West_Ham_London, said: “Just downloaded the BBC iPlayer app to try to watch the England game on my lunch break and it’s not working. Awesome.”
@Beds444 tweeted: “Too bad I can’t see it on iplayer because I got stuck logging into my account for 45 minutes… license refund?”
Some users then managed to get a stream after waiting several minutes, only to be left with poor buffering and connection issues. @AFCRing wrote: “Of course England score and the iPlayer in the office buffers and we miss the goal.”
Those who couldn’t get their coverage back would have been frustrated. England took the lead through Jude Bellingham and added a second through Bukayo Saka before Raheem Sterling scored on the stroke of half time to give the Three Lions a 3-0 lead over Iran.
