Once youd handed over your ticket, you could head anywhere in the stadium that you liked. Naturally, we got in amongst with the England fans behind Fosters goal.

Shame about the result but the atmosphere amongst the English fans was incredible!

Will definitely be joining the FA fans club and getting the caps to get me to France 2016.

We still believe!
