Boris Johnson has confirmed the decision with fans across the country expected to cure the hangover.
It comes as the Prime Minister faces mounting pressure to declare a Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions emergency holiday may be a historic victory.

The final will start at 8 p.m., which means that if the game were to go all the way to extra time and penalties, the match could continue until almost 11 p.m.
Then, if England won, there would also be a trophy ceremony, which would make it an even later night for those who have to get up for school or work the next morning.
