With just a day to go until England take to the pitch at Wembley for the Euro 2020 final, the anticipation is growing across the nation.

It’s not just residential addresses that have taken to the red and white theme.
The final is due to kick off at 8pm and will finish by 10pm if it ends in normal time. However, if it goes to extra time and possibly a penalty shootout, the game would conclude closer to 11pm.
In response to the anticipated celebrations or commiserations, employers and school heads are considering allowing staff and pupils to enjoy a lie-in the morning after the game. A number of schools have already said they will allow pupils to start later on Monday if they want to.
A victory against Italy at Wembley would be the men’s football team’s first major tournament win since the famous 1966 World Cup triumph.
