Waking up at 3am to get the train down to London, sitting next to a fan who was in his 70s and he got emotional at the end! Best day ever pic.twitter.com/F8oyeYffQr— James Whitehead (@GentlemanofWWE) May 26, 2020

She was only 6, and she fell asleep towards the end of extra-time. Meaning my Mum couldn't celebrate any of the penalties, and she was asleep across her lap 🤣 pic.twitter.com/pP9vEkD3NN
