Suffolk brain tumour patient gets special message from Harry Kane

A two-year-old boy from Elmswell in Suffolk has received a special message from England's Captain Harry Kane ahead of the euros final.

Harry Crick and his 10-year-old brother, Olly, were sent the surprise video on Saturday - just a day before the final.

In it the striker said he hopes to “put a smile” on their faces by winning the Euro 2020 final.

Addressing Harry’s brother Olly, 10, Kane wished his younger sibling all the best in fighting the tumour.

Harry was diagnosed with the rare brain cancer on December 17 2020, after he became unwell with a cold and was unsteady on his feet.

On Christmas Eve, he underwent surgery to remove a tennis ball-sized tumour at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, followed by five rounds of chemotherapy.

Hugh Adams, of Brain Tumour Research, said: “It was really wonderful to see that Harry Kane has sent a message of support to little Harry and his family, on this most important of footballing weekends."

Can I get a ticket?

The FA has said the England Supporters Travel club will have an allocation of nearly 8,500 tickets for the game, with remaining tickets going on sale to those who applied for tickets in the original ticket application process in 2019 but did not choose to return them or requested a refund. Otherwise, it looks like there isn't another way to get tickets - all tickets for the games are sold via the Uefa ticket portal and both England's semi-final and the final are marked as sold out.

When is the final?

The Euro 2020 final will take place at Wembley on Sunday 11 July at 8pm.
