Ed Sheeran: The stars celebrate England at the European Championship round of 16

Whether in the stadium, at Glastonbury or on the screen: Stars like Prince William, Ed Sheeran and Idris Elba celebrated England’s round of 16 victory.

England’s national team barely made it to the quarter-finals of the European Football Championship. The Three Lions’ prominent fans were relieved after the narrow 2-1 victory in the round of 16 against Slovakia on Sunday (30 June) after extra time.

“Rollercoaster of emotions” for Prince William

He described the match as a “rollercoaster of emotions”. “Let’s go, England,” wrote the Prince of Wales and President of the English Football Association (FA). “Quarter-finals, here we come,” William concluded his post in which he shared the official announcement from the English national team.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak (44) also kept his fingers crossed for his country at the European Championships despite the election campaign. “It’s not over until it’s over,” he wrote on X with a view to the late equaliser.

Ed Sheeran suffers and celebrates in the German stadium

Ed Sheeran (33) experienced the rollercoaster ride of the European Championship on site. The singer was sitting in the stands in the stadium in Gelsenkirchen. Together with three friends, he saw his team concede the 0:1 in the 25th minute. After that, England struggled and only scored the equalizer in injury time was Jude Bellingham (21). With a spectacular overhead kick, the former Borussia Dortmund player saved his team and took it to extra time. Harry Kane (31) quickly headed in the winning goal.

The pictures from the Arena AufSchalke, which show Ed Sheeran in the England jersey, show a rollercoaster of emotions. At first Ed Sheeran sang along loudly to the national anthem, later there were more tormented and disappointed looks. At the end he and his friends fell into each other’s arms.

Ed Sheeran was there live for England’s group match against Denmark. He was accompanied by his father in Frankfurt. Prince William, who had not travelled to Germany for the round of 16, was also in the stadium for the match against Denmark.

News from Glastonbury

Parallel to the European Football Championship in Germany, another highlight took place in England this weekend: the renowned Glastonbury Festival. During the performance of Canadian Avril Lavigne (39), many listeners were distracted because they were following the match against Slovakia on their mobile phones.

Film star and musician Idris Elba (51) performed at Glastonbury and was informed of the result. “I heard it’s 2-1, did we win?” he asked, according to “Sky News”. “Hey, congratulations – very good England,” said the “Luther” star when he heard the answer.
