Ahead of Sweden game is this the most patriotic street in England?

Residents reckon they are living in England’s most patriotic street after decking every house with St George’s flags ahead of the Three Lions Quarter Final clash with Sweden.

People living in Lillington Road, in Wood End, Coventry, have spent week’s carefully stringing red-and-white bunting between every house on the half-mile long road.

Builder John Burrows, 25, said: “It’s a brilliant effort. Everyone is going nuts for the World Cup.

“The bunting all looks terrific and shows just how much everyone here is getting behind Gareth Southgate and the lads in Russia.

“If we make it to the final it’s going to be crazy. I think we’ve got at least 2,000 flags out here already but that’ll go through the roof if we go all the way.”
