Under 500,000 log on to watch England game

Fewer than half a million people watched England's first game to be broadcast exclusively live over the internet and no detailed viewing figures will be released, the firms behind the move said on Sunday.

Fans who paid between £5 and £12 to watch the match online complained about the lack of atmosphere, slow streaming speeds and the lack of licensed premises showing the game.

But international football agency Kentaro and media group Perform insisted there were "no technical issues".

The firms described the number of viewers as "close to half a million" but this includes figures for the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS), which screened the game free for troops, as well as those who watched it in cinemas and online.
