However, despite the challenge, he is also very excited about the game.

He said: “I think it will be a great game. Fans will love it, and we are the number one sports venue in Brighton.

“The fans were very, very early for the game against Ukraine which is a great response for us. It was a nice feeling all day.

The Ladies Mile’s assistant manager Katie Moss said the atmosphere in previous matches has been excellent.


She said: “With everything that has happened over the last year with Covid, it’s good that everyone is happy and we hope that everything will be okay and something big will come out of it. The previous matches were amazing.

The Font’s Mark Harmsworth said he was very excited about what could be an exciting game, especially with so much at stake and English fans crossing their fingers. When asked if he was coming home, Mark replied, “We’ll have to wait and see. ”
