Sue Whiffin said: ‘Good luck, we are all cheering for you and England.’

David Moulder said: ‘Good luck – its in your destiny.’

Charlene Pelham added: ‘A win would make me really happy and something good to celebrate after all the rubbish that's happened over the last few years.

‘It will make my six-year-old happy as well – it will be something for him to remember for a long time.’

England’s 4-0 victory against Ukraine on Saturday evening was the team’s biggest victory in Euro history.

Eight goals have been scored by the Three Lions so far in this competition, with Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling scoring three each, plus goals from Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson.
