You must have looked hard enough to find English supporters in Rome ahead of Euro 2020 quarter-final against Ukraine
There was no massive crowd in the streets like you usually see around such an important game in a big tournament.
Few of the English flags or shirts were visible and the supporters we found were living in Italy or another EU country.
They were able to travel to watch the match, unlike the UK supporters.
COVID will put something of a shock absorber on the atmosphere inside the stadium. But a British family has promised to make as much noise as possible.
We met the Bennett’s who had come from Cyprus. They are excited to see England play but wish there were more fans there to support the team.
Amber, 15, told us, “I will definitely scream, I will scream.”
Mum Tara said: “And believe me, she can scream!”
Amber intervenes: “We have to catch up with the fans at home because obviously we won’t be that many, so the few who are there have to really make an impact, encourage the team and give their motivation. encourage the team very hard. “
English players admitted in the hours leading up to the match fan motivation really helps. But this time, COVID restrictions have prevented thousands of people from traveling from the UK.
After the euphoria of the victory over Germany, many supporters were probably tempted to make the trip but the head of health for the Rome region has warned people not to break the rules.
