Football News: England Fans Give Three Lions Rousing Send-Off Ahead of Euro 2024 Campaign

Staffordshire, England (June 12, 2023) – The England national football team was given a hero’s farewell as they departed for Germany ahead of the highly anticipated Euro 2024 tournament.

The 26-man squad, led by captain Harry Kane, was greeted by adoring fans at St. George’s Park, the team’s training complex, on Monday. Among the excited supporters were some rival Aston Villa fans, which prompted a light-hearted exchange with Birmingham City academy graduate Jude Bellingham.

“You’re joking, I feel bad for signing them now!” the midfield sensation joked, highlighting the spirited club rivalries that often come with representing the national team.

Bellingham, who has enjoyed a stunning debut season with Real Madrid, was joined by fellow England stars such as Eberechi Eze, who is set to make his major tournament debut. The 20-year-old expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “Great send-off here and hopefully we can make them proud.”

Alongside Bellingham and Eze, the England squad included the youngest player, 19-year-old Kobbie Mainoo of Manchester United, who recalled the “buzzing” moment he found out about his call-up by manager Gareth Southgate.

Captain Kane, who will be leading England’s quest for European glory, spoke of the team’s determination to finally bring home a major trophy. “It’s time that we got over the line. It’s going to be very hard and a lot of hard work along the way, but we’re looking forward to it,” he said.

After signing autographs and posing for selfies with the adoring fans, the England team boarded their coaches and departed for Birmingham Airport, where they will catch their flight to Germany. The Three Lions will be based at the Golfresort Weimarer Land in Blankenhain as they prepare for their Euro 2024 Group C matches against Serbia, Denmark, and Slovenia.
