Football Fans Living Near Manchester Have Renamed Their Road England Street As Excitement Builds Ahead Of The Euro 2020 Final

The residents of what was Wales Street in Oldham have blanketed their homes in England flags and erected the ‘temporary’ new red and white sign above the original.

The road, which sits between Prince Charlie Street and Prince George Street, looks patriotic ahead of the Three Lions’ clash with Italy at Wembley on Sunday – the team’s biggest game in 55 years.

Many people will be watching the game from their living rooms, and street resident Eddie Leatherbarrow has been spotted with an assortment of England-themed flags flying from his home.

Schoolchildren Noah Butterworth, Harry Chamberlain and Aviana Butterworth have also been celebrating England’s winning streak in the tournament in their front garden.

The men’s team broke past the semi-final stage of the European tournament for the first time on Wednesday, when they beat Denmark at Wembley Stadium.

Similar decorations were spotted at the Prime Minister’s official residence on Downing Street later on Friday, with St George flag bunting draped across the front railings and between the first floor windows.
