England is waking up today with a national sense of relief as the England football squad took one step closer to bringing the football home in a 2-1 win against Denmark in the Euro 2020 semi-final last night (Wednesday, July 7).
It is a historic win as the match took the Three Lions into the final of their first major tournament since the World Cup in 1966 – ending a 55-year-wait.
What crossed us over the edge was a goal in extra time by England captain Harry Kane. After a missed penalty he came in again and shot it the back of the net past Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and winning the match for the England squad.
But as the country soaks up the win, there’s no time to get complacent as Brits get ready for the Euro 2020 final against Italy at Wembley in London.
Fans will of course be looking to see if tickets are still available for the final in the Capital, and we’ll say at toward the beginning of this article that no, they’re not. Not for the stadium seats anyway.
But if you fancy splashing the cash you can nab a hospitality seat or try your luck on a resale site. LiveFootballTickets has tickets listed for the England v Italy final but you will be spending a fair bit – prices start at £3,500.
That being said, if you’re a Londoner and happening to be reading this article – Mayor Sadiq Khan is offering a chance to win two tickets to the final, as long as you book or receive your vaccine in London today.
There are 50 tickets available to watch the final from the Trafalgar Square Fan Zone – click here to find out more..
Of course, thousands of people can be seen in pictures outside the stadium watching the match on massive televisions and being as close to the action as is now possible.
