The FA could be faced with the embarrassing prospect of empty seats in England's away section for games against Israel and Andorra. Only three-quarters of the ticket allocation for the games has been taken up, and the FA have made a direct appeal to the supporters' group englandfans.

England are famed for taking a mammoth contingent of fans to away games and tournaments, but the news comes on the back of a dismal run.

Steve McClaren's side are without a win in four games, and were booed off after a pedestrian 1-0 friendly defeat at home to Spain this month.

One member of englandfans told the Daily Telegraph: "Maybe fans are voting with their feet or their wallets.

"It's surprising, really, because England fans have usually bankrupted themselves following England all over the world."

Security concerns have been cited as a reason why fans are staying away from the crucial Israel fixture on March 24, with 1,000 tickets unsold.

Meanwhile the trip to face Andorra in Barcelona's Olympic Stadium has even more places available, with 3,000 of the 12,000 allocation still up for grabs.
perhaps by sacking ste-c *current england manager* would boost up the ticket sales. BRING BACK BECKS!! we as fans want to see the greatest set piece by the only one set-piece master DAVID BECKHAM!!none of the midfielder in england could be like him!!
