Now, the entire UK is hoping and praying that England will bring home the trophy on July 11.

If England win the Euro 2020 final, celebrations could be cut short

It has reportedly opted against holding a mass event this month if the England team win the European Championships on Sunday.

Due to COVID-19 laws, a parade held days after England’s potential victory would break large gathering rules.

According to reports, waiting until the following week (July 19) wouldn’t work either.

A source told The Telegraph that by that point, the England team will be on a well-earned break after a gruelling schedule.

The FA had been planning a party at Wembley with tickets allocated to control numbers but the idea has been shelved, according to Mail Online.

A spokesman said: “There are currently no plans for a parade or an event due to Covid.”

However, there will likely be celebrations around England’s next home game at Wembley on September 5. Well, depending on if we manage to take home the trophy on Sunday that is!
