The wicketkeeper of India enjoyed the victory of England over their arch-enemies in the company of his friends …
Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant was attending Wembley Stadium in London when England beat England in a Euro 2020 final on Tuesday night.
Raheem Sterling and captain Harry Kane’s goals in the second half helped the Three Lions defeat their bitter rivals Germany in the all-important result and reach the quarterfinals of the competition.
Pant, who is currently with the Indian cricket team in England, has a few days off after the World Cup final that India lost last week. The young wicketkeeper decided to make the most of his free time by watching a brilliant football action.
It was the first time since the 1966 World Cup final that England had beaten Germany in a major international competition. It was also a sweet revenge on the defeat of the Euro 1996 semi-finals and the defeat of the World Cup in 16 in 2010, which was tainted by Frank Lampard’s infamous ‘Ghost Goal’ controversy.
While Gareth Southgate’s men claimed an unforgettable victory, Pant watched the match with some of his friends at the iconic Wembley Stadium.
Pant took to social media to share his photos:
What next for England?
Gareth Southgate’s team will face Ukraine in the quarterfinals on July 3, and if they manage to win, they will face the winner of Denmark against the Czech Republic in the semi-finals.
Why is Pant in England?
The young wicketkeeper traveled to England with the Indian cricket team earlier in June to face New Zealand in the final of the first World Cup. The Men in Blue lost the final by eight wickets. However, their tour is not over yet as they now have a five-match Test series against England to prepare.
