Huge crowd gives England team awesome send-off from training camp near Burton

July 11, 2021

Hundreds of supporters turned up as the team set off on their journey to Wembley

Hundreds of fans gathered at England's base at St George's Park near Burton to send the team off to the Euro 2020 final.

Supporters of the Three Lions turned up in their droves to wish the men's national team well ahead of its first major final since 1966.

Staffordshire Live reports that police and highways officers were drafted in to help control the crowd, such was its size, on Saturday, July 10.

The atmosphere reached fever pitch at around 4pm, when the coach carrying the team went past the crowd and on its way to London.

There were chants of “come on England”, with people also singing the chorus of “It's Coming Home”.

However, some fans were left disappointed, with those hoping that the coach would head through Burton feeling short-changed when the driver took a left out of St George's Park towards the A515.

The coach was spotted at 4.30pm – about 30 minutes after leaving Needwood – at Toyota Island, which links the A50 and A38.

England will play Italy at Wembley, with kick-off at 8pm tonight, Sunday, July 11.
