Rishi Sunak Joins Three Lions to Celebrate UK as Euro 2028 Hosts with Ireland


Prime Minister Rishi Sunak marked the momentous occasion of the United Kingdom and Ireland being named as hosts for the 2028 European Championship by paying a visit to England's national football team at St. George's Park on Tuesday. Joined by Three Lions captain Harry Kane and manager Gareth Southgate, Sunak participated in a series of photos where he proudly held an England jersey bearing the number 28. Reflecting on his personal connection to football, Sunak stated, "I grew up with Euro 96 being one of the most amazing memories of my childhood." He continued, "We have a chance to do that all over again for lots more people, just like we did last year with the Lionesses, who won the 2022 Women's Euro at London's Wembley Stadium." With great enthusiasm, Sunak emphasized the UK's expertise in hosting major tournaments and the significant economic benefits it would bring. NFR live
