Published

The Queen has recalled presenting the World Cup trophy in 1966 as she sent her “good wishes” to the England team ahead of the Euro 2020 final.

She said she hoped that history would record the team’s success but also “the spirit, commitment and pride with which you have conducted yourselves”.

The monarch said she had seen what it meant to the players to win a major tournament 55 years ago.

Gareth Southgate’s team play Italy at Wembley on Sunday.

Her message reads: “Fifty-five 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.”
