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.”
