Own goal, Boris? PM’s photo op cheering the Three Lions on television backfires somewhat as it’s shared by fans on Twitter
The couple watched Gareth Southgate’s men outclass the Germans 2-0 and advance to the quarter finals of Euro 2020.
Downing Street also shared a video showing the PM yelling ‘Harry Kane finally scores!’, after the England captain added the second goal.
Mr Johnson raised his hands in triumph during the game – unwittingly giving fans the perfect opportunity to make him the subject of several memes.
Hilarious mock-ups showed the PM and Ms Symonds seemingly watching the infamous photo of ex-Health Secretary Matt Hancock kissing aide Gina Colangelo.
Another showed Mr Johnson with his arms raised as he enjoyed an episode of the Teletubbies.
The PM later tweeted: ‘Well done England! We’re all behind you – bring it home!’
Some social media users also spotted that the PM keeps a recycling and general waste bin next to one marked ‘confidential’.
