FANS were left fuming as both the BBC and ITV opted not to show the Women's World Cup's closing ceremony.
The tournament wraps up today with England taking on Spain for ultimate glory.
As is customary, there was an official closing ceremony in front of a packed stadium pre-game.
But both channels showing the match in the UK opted not to show it in full.
One fan tweeted: "Great start, BBC talking over the final ceremony and ITV not even showing it."
And a second wrote: "Why is ITV so behind, BBC isn’t showing the closing ceremony how odd."

A third blasted: "BBC talking over the closing ceremony. ITV not even showing it. Bit disrespectful."
Another fumed: "@GabbyLogan @AlexScott so ignorant. The closing ceremony is on and you both continue to talk over it.
"@BBCSport why would you leave the closing ceremony and go to the zoo. The ceremony is what we would be watching if it was a men’s World Cup or olympics."
The closing ceremony was available to watch in full on BBC iPlayer.
