Queen sends good luck letter to Gareth Southgate praising England team’s ‘spirit and pride’


The Queen has written to England Football Manager Gareth Southgate ahead of tomorrow’s Euro 2020 final.

On Windsor Castle headed paper the note read:

“55 years ago I was fortunate to present the World Cup to Bobby Moore and saw what it meant to the players, management and support staff to reach and win the final of a major international football tournament.

“I want to send my congratulations and that of my family to you all on reaching the final of the European Championships, and send my good wishes for tomorrow with the hope that history will record not only your success but also the spirit, commitment, and pride with which you have conducted yourselves.”

“Elizabeth R”

The England squad responded to the “very, very special message”, saying:

“Thank you for your support, Your Majesty.”
