England’s WAGs have been given the all-clear to make a ‘secret’ trip to Wembley for the game against Croatia.
The Three Lions stars will kick off their Euro 2020 campaign against the team that knocked them out of the World Cup in the semi-finals on Sunday.
That means that the players’ stunning wives and girlfriends have also hit the limelight ahead of the continental tournament.
Gareth Southgate’s squad, though, were dealt a blow as Covid-19 regulations meant the WAGs would be banned from team hotels and visits.
But The Sun have reported that the wives and girlfriends will be allowed into Wembley for the opener against Croatia.
The women will convene at a ‘secret’ location for lunch to be joined by family before all being driven to the 90,000-seater stadium for the match.
While the FA will have a ‘player liaisons official’ on hand to help the group avoid breaching Covid-19 regulations.
A source told The Sun : “Plans have been put in place to keep everyone safe.
Do you think England will win their Euro 2020 opening game against Croatia? Let us know in the comments section.
“The Wags and families haven’t been able to watch the players at a match because of Covid, but with fans coming back, it was important they were included too.
“The FA and England boss Gareth Southgate are aware of how important family is to the players. They will play a key role this summer if England are to bring it home.”
UEFA protocols around Covid-19, though, make it impossible for Three Lions stars to catch up with their loved ones.
The likes of Fern Hawkins, Megan Davison and Katie Goodland will have to make do with catching glimpses of their other halves on FaceTime and WhatsApp.
Southgate is hoping that he can give his stars some time off at home with their families in between matches. But even that remains unclear with the tournament scheduled to begin in on June 11.
England start their Euro 2020 campaign against Croatia on Sunday before taking on Scotland and Czech Republic in their group.
