The uninspired performance from Gareth Southgate's squad sparked a furious response from thousands of England fans both on social media and in Qatar, with many labelling the game: "poor", "terrible" and even "dreadful".
But, the accusations of England's "boring" style of play have now been proved true.
Friday's stalemate marked England's 12th goalless draw at the World Cup - the most of any team in the tournament's history.
The Three Lions have been held to a 0-0 draw by teams including; Brazil, Uruguay, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, Costa Rica, Nigeria and Morocco in the past, but fans are now starting to grow more and more frustrated at the team's apparent lack of ambition on the pitch.Read More in FootballQATAR LATEST USA hold shambolic England to bore draw, Wales on brink of World Cup EXITWIN BOOST Argentina vs Mexico - Sky Bet offer: Lionel Messi to score a hat trick at 40/1!
One person tweeted: "This is an absolute disgrace by @England Why is Gareth not bringing on our best player? We have spent more time playing backwards than attacking. Its a woeful performance, an embarrassment and them players should be ashamed!"
While another added: "A staggeringly inept performance from England, with a manager once again, sadly, highlighting an inability to get the most out of the attacking talent in the squad, or change a game tactically when needed."
The fan fury came just a few days after England kicked off their 2022 World Cup campaign with a 6-2 win over Iran thanks to goals from Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish.

After Friday's game, he said: "Of course I want our fans to go home happy. I want our fans at home to have a smile on their faces.
"We didn’t quite manage to achieve that tonight. But people are going to react how they’re going to react.
"I can’t let that affect how I feel about the team or how the team feels. The objective is to qualify. We have three games to do it.
"I would imagine most of the teams in the competition will take three games to do it.
"We have to stay calm in these tournaments. We’ve been through this before. I’ve been in it as a player and a coach.
"We have the unique thing of getting through the last two in two games. So I’m sure there will be a lot of noise - this is the tournament of external noise. But we’re on track. We have a bit to do. We can still improve. That’s going to be our target."Topics
