The film, released earlier this month, charts the life and career of one of England's most maverick players.

Arguably Gascoigne's most famous moment in an England shirt involved a World Cup semi-final, when he was brought to tears as England went out of Italia 90 at the hands of West Germany.

And Mark Sampson's women have been drawing inspiration from the film, with goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain tweeting on Tuesday morning: "Loved watching Gascoigne with the girls tonight. Such pride & honour to play for @england. How it should be!"

Forty-eight-year-old Gascoigne made 57 appearances for England, scoring 10 goals.

The world number three will be on Centre Court to play world number 58 Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan.

He arrives in SW19 in what many - including himself - have described as the best form of his life.

Bookmakers have made him the second favourite to go all the way after he conquered a fourth title at Queen's last week in impressive fashion.

Following his wedding to long-time girlfriend Kim Sears in April, Murray, 28, has declared that "marriage works".

Fans gripped by Murray mania will be giving their support inside the All England Club or watching on from the big screen on Murray Mound and TV sets in homes and workplaces up and down the country.
