The Queen presents Bobby Moore with the Jules Rimet Trophy for winning the 1966 World Cup

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Boris Johnson have sent messages of support to the England national team ahead of the Euro 2020 final.

The team, under the technical direction of Gareth Southgate, plays Italy at Wembley Stadium, today, Sunday, at 20:00 GMT.

The Queen’s message reads: “55 years ago I was fortunate to present the World Cup to Bobby Moore, and saw what it meant, for players, management and support staff, to reach and win the final of one of the major international football tournaments.”

“I want to send all of you my congratulations and my family’s congratulations on reaching the European Championship final, and I hope that history will record not only your success, but also the spirit, commitment and pride with which you dealt with yourselves.”
