England fans to unfurl banner in support of Saka, Rashford and Sancho


This weekend’s World Cup qualifier against Andorra marks the first England game at Wembley since the trio missed penalties in the Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy in July.

Now as England return to the national stadium for the first time since the final, supporters groups have come together independently to produce a banner of the three players which will be unfurled ahead of the game against Andorra on Sunday.

A number of arrests have been made around the abuse following the penalty shootout in July, while the players were inundated with floods of messages of support in the weeks after. Saka returned to training at Arsenal to find a wall of messages from fans while a similar scene greeted the England squad as they arrived at St. George’s Park last week for the first international camp since the tournament.

65,000 are expected to attend the Andorra game, ahead of which there will be tributes paid to former England internationals Paul Mariner, Terry Cooper and Doug Holden, who have all passed away.
