Swapping the lager & crisps for bucket of Vindaloo: Will Mellor reboots England anthem as North West supports the Euros

For football fans, the time has finally arrived, Euro 2020 is well underway!

The international tournament should have taken place last summer, but was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

England started their campaign in a winning way at Wembley beating World Cup finalists Croatia 1-0, and next take on Scotland and the Czech Republic.

If the players need some extra motivation, they only need to turn to the Manchester actor and comedian Will Mellor, who's recorded a new take on an old England classic.

The remake of the Fat Les classic is raising money for NHS Charities Together.

Unfortunately there won't be scenes like this this year..

But socially-distanced pre-booked outdoor screenings will be taking place around the region.

So when do England play? Here are the dates for your diary:

  • England vs Croatia - Sunday 13 June - 2pm

  • England vs Scotland - Friday 18 June - 8pm

  • Czech Republic vs England - Tuesday 22 June - 8pm

If England qualify as group winners, they'll play on Tuesday 29 June at 5pm

If England quality in second place, they'll play on Monday 28 June at 5pm

If England scrape through in third place they could play on either Sunday 27 June at 5pm or 8pm, or Tuesday 29 at 8pm.

If England finish fourth... well, we'd rather not talk about that.

The final world goes to the children at Flakefleet Primary School in Fleetwood who are cheering on Gareth Southgate and his players.

They know what it takes to the reach a final after making it all the way to the last two in Britain's Got Talent in 2019.
