These fans are clamouring for a knighthood for Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane if England win Euro 2020

For the first time since 1966, the England national team are in a major tournament final and, what’s more, they deserve to be there.

A little luck in the Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark notwithstanding, the Three Lions have been impeccable throughout the tournament and for that, huge credit must go to manager, Gareth Southgate.

Now he, and his squad, are just one step away from glory against an admittedly fantastic Italian outfit.

Gareth Southgate has a chance to exorcise his demons at Wembley on Sunday

At the scene where Southgate so cruelly missed a semi-final penalty for England against Germany in Euro 96, he could exorcise all of his demons by 10pm on Sunday night.

England expects, and the manager and squad will do their best to deliver.

Should they do so, there will be a clamour for both Southgate and his captain, Harry Kane, to be knighted.
