Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has send a message to the England soccer team and manager Gareth Southgate, wishing them luck ahead of Sunday’s EURO 2020 final match.
England are set to face Italy at London’s Wembley Stadium, in the Three Lion’s first major tournament final since the 1966 World Cup.
While recalling her memory of presenting the World Cup title to the then England captain Bobby Moore, Queen Elizabeth II hopes “history will record not only your success but also the spirit, commitment and pride with which you have conducted yourselves.”
“I want to send my congratulations and that of my family to you all on reaching the European Championships, and send my good wishes for tomorrow (Sunday, July 11)…” said the Queen.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also wished the team good luck, congratulating Southgate men for the scintillating journey in the EUR 2020 so far.
“Best of luck tonight England…It has been an incredible journey so far but we are all hoping you could go one better and bring it home tonight,” said the PM in a short video message on his Twitter handle on Sunday morning.
