England football supporters have begun getting into the party spirit ahead of the Euro 2020 semi-final showdown with Denmark. Not one to miss out on a patriotic bandwagon the PM, not a football fan, has posed with an England top.
Three Lions fans are expected to get through nearly 10 million pints in pubs and beer gardens tonight, while the majority of the 60,000 supporters inside Wembley for the semi-final showdown will hope to create a typically partisan atmosphere.
The Duke of Cambridge, who is president of the Football Association, will be among those inside the ground to watch the match, which will be the first time the men’s team has made it to the semi-final of a European Championship since an ill-fated penalty shootout defeat to Germany at Euro 96.
So in the support of this huge tie the PM found a minute to pose with an England shirt outside 10 Downing Street.

You have peddled racism your whole life. You attacked our team for taking the knee.— Dave Ward (@DaveWardGS) July 7, 2021
You have absolutely no right to lay claim to the shirt number of our talisman, Raheem Sterling – someone who has overcome racism and leads by example every day
You’re a fraud
COME ON ENGLAND https://t.co/PpJ3CG2RDW
The irony of him holding up Sterling’s number 10 though… https://t.co/SDh8wyWW5k— Jolyon Rubinstein (@JolyonRubs) July 7, 2021

Just to remind everyone: Boris Johnson refused to condemn people booing England players until polling show that it was unpopular.— Zarah Sultana MP (@zarahsultana) July 7, 2021
He’s not even a glory-supporter. He’s a focus-group fan. https://t.co/AjemeuU4Cd
“He works it out, he decides which way the wind is blowing, and that wonderful phrase about a politician – a man who waits to see the way the crowd is running and then dashes in front and says, ‘Follow me’.”— Jonathan Mock., Esq⚙️ (@MrJonathanMock) July 7, 2021
