Boris Johnson voices his support for the England football team

The Prime Minister and his wife cheered on England as they beat Denmark 2-1 last night.

Boris Johnson and Carrie backed the Three Lions at Wembley as the team sealed a place in Sunday’s final against Italy. 

It is the squad’s biggest football game since the historic 1966 World Cup victory. 

England pulled even with Denmark thanks to an own goal as the first half of their blockbuster Euro 2020 semi-final showdown went 1-1, and a late penalty brought England ahead 2-1, securing the win. 

Thousands of England football fans had chanted ‘It’s Coming Home’ outside Wembley Stadium for up to eight hours ahead of the semi-final match against Denmark.

Gareth Southgate’s squad faced off against the Danes at 8pm, with an estimated 30 million people tuning in to watch the showdown on TV and 60,000 packing out the home of English football for the game. 

The Prime Minister tweeted ‘We’re behind you England!’ and posted a picture of himself wearing a shirt with the name ‘Boris’ and a number 10 emblazoned on the back as he gets into the back of a car. 

He and his wife Carrie were in the crowd at Wembley cheering on England.

Wembley was awash with red, white and blue, with onlookers describing scenes of ‘carnage’ with huge numbers of England fans sing ‘It’s Coming Home’ and ‘God Save the Queen’.

Fans also let off flares and did knee slides while taking selfies with rival supporters wearing Viking horns.

There was more expectation on England in the European Championship this summer than when they went on a surprise run to the last four of the 2018 World Cup, and they have thus far risen to the challenge.  

While Gary Neville said he has ‘genuine confidence in this manager and players’, the former England and Manchester United defender insisted nothing less than their best display will be enough to carry them into Sunday’s showpiece.

Just hours before kick-off, Neville wrote on Instagram: ‘History beckons for this team. To reach back-to-back Semi-Finals is incredible, but it’s not enough. You become nearly men!

‘I do have genuine confidence in this manager and players that this time a semi-final isn’t the end! To win any semi-final takes a great performance. This is a really good Denmark team and anything less than our best and/or luck will not be enough.

‘The only danger is that the lads don’t see the danger. When you’re euphoric and on a wave in sport or life you can have that feeling it’s never going to end and something becomes your right. It doesn’t work like that.

‘Tonight is a night to be cold, don’t let emotion take over, stick to the manager’s plan and focus. Go for it lads! Focus and grab this chance!’

Neville was part of the England coaching staff in their last appearance at the European Championship when they were defeated by Iceland, working under Roy Hodgson, who believes the current crop have been ‘absolutely perfect’.

‘I’m very confident indeed because I think the England team is playing so exceptionally well from the start of the tournament really,’ he told ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

‘In fact, they have been faultless. I can’t think of anything to criticise, although I’m sure there are people who do find something. But they must be hard pushed to find something. It’s been absolutely perfect.’

Hodgson said the Wembley crowd will ‘play a major part’ but is dreading the prospect of a penalty shoot-out.

‘My main hope tonight is that the game won’t go to penalties,’ he added. ‘You can argue that the penalty shoot-out is better than the flip of a coin, but it is a very cruel way to lose matches.’
