A squad of school pupils visited the home of English football on Saturday to watch the Three Lions.

With spirits still high following on from the England squad's World Cup success this summer, twenty-five West Hatch High School students went to Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Pupils watched as England competed in their first competitive game of the newly-formed UEFA Nations League.

Before kick-off they saw Harry Kane receive the World Cup Golden Boot.

The game did not go England's way, with an early goal by Marcus Rashford cancelled out almost immediately by central midfielder Saúl Ñíguez.

A second blow was dealt 20 minutes later when Rodrigo Machado slotted in from close range.

England came on strongly late on and had a last-minute equaliser controversially ruled out after Danny Welbeck was judged to have fouled David de Gea.

Despite the result, the entertaining game provided a legitimate footballing experience for both boys and girls from across several year groups.

Aaron D'Silva, PE teacher at West Hatch High School, said: "We got to watch super football from some world class performers.

"The experience can only help inspire our own students to perform well for West Hatch this academic year."
