    King Charles III sends request to English national team


    After reaching the European Championship final, the English national players were showered with congratulations. The King also congratulated them – and had a request.

    It's no secret that Prince William is a passionate football fan. The 42-year-old insisted on attending several games live during the European Championship. He travelled to England's group match against Denmark and cheered his team on from the stands in the quarter-finals. He had to watch the semi-final against the Netherlands on Wednesday on TV, however.

    But the heir to the throne did not leave the victory uncommented. Shortly after the final whistle, he shared a message on social media, obviously still full of emotion: “What a beauty, Ollie! Congratulations, England” and signed the personal words with W. for William.

    National player Ollie Watkins scored the winning goal just before the end, putting the Three Lions in the final. A situation that also left King Charles III unmoved. He also congratulated them via social media “on reaching the final of the European Championship” and sent his “best wishes for the game on Sunday”.

    The monarch then made a humorous request to captain Harry Kane and co.: “If I may encourage you to achieve victory before any last-minute miracle goals or another penalty drama are necessary, I am sure that the strain on the nation's collective pulse and blood pressure would be considerably alleviated,” said Charles.

    In the 90th minute against the Netherlands, Ollie Watkins, who had only come on for captain Kane ten minutes earlier, scored with a low shot into the far corner, thus deciding the game for England. In the quarter-final against Switzerland, Gareth Southgate's team had advanced on penalties.

    The Three Lions are now in the European Championship final for the second time in a row. Their opponents in the final next Sunday at 9 p.m. in Berlin are Spain. The English have been waiting for a major title since their World Cup triumph in 1966, i.e. for 58 years. They lost the last European Championship final in London against Italy on penalties.
