"What a great way therefore to show our support by ensuring that some of our recognisable civic buildings and the famous Black Prince statue on City Square, are now displaying their England colours with great pride!"
It's been over 600 days since Gareth Southgate took charge of his first England game.. We're pleased with the intelligence and style of our play.
England manager Gareth Southgate says he knew that the negative press about Russian Federation leading up to this summer's World Cup would not turn out to be true.

Fans have been dancing in the town's streets and chanting It's Coming Home following England's wins earlier in the tournament.
"Football's Coming Home is a song I couldn't even listen to for 20 years, frankly".
"And the most magnificent thing is he is 23 years old, so he is still focused, keeping the desire to get better, as a player".
Incredible scenes have filled the town centre after the team progressed through the competition reaching the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.
