England fan admits 'I have gone a bit mad' with his St George-festooned house ...

An England fan admitted he has 'gone a bit mad' with his decorations after covering his entire house in St George's flags and Three Lions memorabilia ahead of the Euro 2020 final tomorrow.

Benny Elcock, 59, from York, said it took him a couple of days to put up the display, but he has done the same for every major football tournament for decades.

The diehard supporter added that he is well known in the Clifton area of the city for his quirky decorations at Christmas and for other events.

Mr Elcock said: 'My house is covered in England flags, I have bunting, dogs, little twirly things, balls and tiny flags - I've gone a bit mad.'

Jade Brooks' bulldog, Bruno, was also seen dressed for the occasion in a Three Lions shirt while sitting in front of flags and bunting adorning a block of flats in Feltham, west London, this afternoon.

It comes as Gareth Southgate rallies 35million fans ahead of the final by saying that England should not be ashamed of its history and praising his squad's role in driving 'tolerance and inclusion'.

England's men's football team are now just one historic win away from their first major silverware since 1966 after their 2-1 triumph over Denmark earlier this week. 

The Everton fan, who plans to watch Sunday's final against Italy at home with his son and partner, believes goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has had a 'brilliant' tournament.

Mr Elcock said: 'It took me a couple of days to get it all up but it's kind of my tradition - I've done it for every Euros and World Cup. It's just a bit of fun to show my support.

'My neighbours and family love it but that's what I'm known for in the area. I always get worried that England may get beat early on but I usually leave it up anyway.

'I have to say it makes it a lot better that they've got this far - it makes the games a lot more fun with the display.' 

He added: 'I can't wait for the game, I absolutely think we can do it, they're a good team and they have got so far.
