White Cliffs of Dover illuminated in message of support to England squad ahead of Euros final

More news, no ads



A rousing message of support to Gareth Southgate's England squad has been illuminated on the White Cliffs of Dover.

The famous landmark has been lit up in giant red lettering ahead of tomorrow's epic clash against Italy in the Euros final at Wembley.

The message is signed off by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds - the artists behind the classic Three Lions tune everyone has been singing for the past month.

The illumination reads, 'We've always believed. Good luck Gareth & the England squad'.

Tomorrow's once-in-a-generation final - which hopefully ends with Harry Kane lifting the famous trophy - kicks off at 8pm, and is being aired on both BBC and ITV.

It is expected to be one of most watched events in the 21st century, and thousands of punters will be in Kent bars and pubs throughout the day.
