It didn’t take long to see the English fans celebrating happily in the stands at Wembley, during the Euro final between Italy and England. Prince William and his son George, in the front row, did not fail to greet the opening scoring of Luke Shaw.
England on the royal road in the Euro final? The early opening score of Luke Shaw – the fastest in history at this stage of the competition – against Italy in any case delighted the fans present in large numbers in the stands at Wembley this Sunday evening. Starting with the members of the royal family present in the front row.
Prince William and his son George in heaven
A few hours before the kick-off, Prince William had gone there for his encouragement to support the “Three Lions” before their first meeting in the final of the European Nations Championship. In a video message sent directly to the staff, he publicly displayed his support for coach Gareth Southgate, captain Harry Kane and all the stakeholders of this beautiful course.
There is no doubt that these encouragements were received five out of five. Just one minute and 57 seconds after the kick-off of this final against Italy, the English were already in front of the scoreboard thanks to a goal from Luke Shaw. An achievement that delighted the prince but also – and above all – his son George.
The son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had permission from his parents to attend the meeting. And his joy on the goal of the English selection did not fail to react on social networks. Several people had fun taking screenshots illustrating the emotion of the 7-year-old boy, others even isolating his celebration on video.
Tom Cruise and David Beckham’s iconic “check”
In the VIP stand, other flashy names were also delighted with this goal, like the legend of Mancunian David Beckham or the American Tom Cruise, who had also gone there for his message of support before the game. The actor and former footballer even exchanged a quick fist check on Shaw’s goal. An already iconic sequence.
