I don’t want to jinx it, Starmer says about Euros bank holiday


I’ve always said this team were gonna go all the way – PM on football

Prime Minister Sir Keir Starmer has said “we should certainly mark the occasion” if England win Euro 2024.

But he stopped short of confirming there would be a bank holiday if the Three Lions were victorious, saying he did not want to “jinx it”.

Speaking at the Nato summit in Washington, he said: “We should certainly mark the occasion.

“I went to the last Euros finals. I don’t want to go through that again so I don’t want to jinx anything.

“We must mark it in someway but the most important thing is getting it over the line on Sunday.”

England will play Spain in the final of Euro 2024 on Sunday in Berlin.

Sir Keir said he always knew the team were going to go “all the way.”

The prime minister managed to take a few minutes out from the Nato gathering to watch part of the game with his Dutch counterpart, as England faced off against the Netherlands in Wednesday’s semi-final.

“It was fantastic. I managed to pop out from one of my sessions for just five minutes which is when I saw Harry Kane get the first goal,” he said.

“I missed the second one but it’s brilliant but on we go now, great change, I’ve always said this team are going to all the way so I’m really really pleased. And just good luck for Sunday.”

‘England deserves chance to celebrate’

The Liberal Democrats have called for an extra bank holiday if England lift the trophy on Sunday.

Leader Sir Ed Davey said: “The Three Lions are playing their first-ever final on foreign soil, and if they bring it home, the government should bring home a bank holiday to celebrate.

“England deserves the chance to celebrate a once-in-a-generation event.

“Who knows, we might even get decent weather.”
