bor­ough Re­gional Col­lege, in Park Cres­cent, to watch the match.

To­mas Vano (18), of East­gate, Peter­bor­ough, said: “I wanted Eng­land to win be­cause I don’t like Slove­nia. I am back­ing Brazil to win this World Cup.”

Amy-Leigh Noble (19), of Dogsthorpe, said: “It is great the col­lege al­lowed us to watch the match as oth­er­wise lots of stu­dents would have gone home.”

Ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of busi­ness devel­op­ment, Kevin Tay­lor said: “Al­low­ing the stu­dents to watch the match is good.

“We have a very di­verse pop­u­la­tion and the World Cup is bring­ing ev­ery­one to­gether.

“It also en­sured that stu­dents at­tended their lessons. How­ever, it is busi­ness as usual for the rest of the col­lege.”

The pupils of Ful­bridge School, in Kee­ton Road, New Eng­land, Peter­bor­ough, got into the foot­ball spirit early.

They were al­lowed to wear their Eng­land shirts through­out the day, be­fore the Year 6 pupils were in­vited to join the staff in watch­ing the game.

Head­teacher Iain Ersk­ine said: “It’s been a re­ally good at­mos­phere in the school, es­pe­cially as we had our spe­cial­ist World Cup lunch as well. The chil­dren had a great time.”
