        At the Rose and Crown pub in Wimbledon village, scores of fans have gathered for the England game, including many who have left Wimbledon.

        Those who have tickets for Saturday’s tennis have been issued with pink and blue re-entry wristbands.

        There were chants of ‘get the tennis off’ as fans waited eagerly for the football to be put on the big screens.

        Clive McCabe, from Twickenham, has seats on Court One but has left to watch the football.

        He said: ‘It’s the most people who have left Wimbledon on middle Saturday between 1pm and 2pm.’

        He added: ‘There’s more people leaving than going in.’

                England’s victories so far in Russia have sparked scenes of wild celebration here and the atmosphere today will be electric – especially if they progress.

                Elsewhere, crowds have flocked to outdoor big screens in cities including London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol, Exeter and Leeds to make the most of the beautiful weather while watching the game.  

                To help keep cool – or steady the nerves – 38 million pints of beer are set to be drunk by fans as the latest chapter in captain Harry Kane and the team’s Russian adventure triggers a £190million big-game drinks and food spree. 

                Some 18 million pints are expected to be downed in pubs – 7 million more than usual – with pub takings soaring to £100 million as a predicted 3.5 million fans pack the country’s 40,000 pubs to watch the match.

                At home, 20m pints are expected to be drunk today costing around £22m, the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) said. Food spending on the match will add up to another £30m in pubs and £40m at home. 

                 However, not all of the UK was getting behind the Three Lions.

                Swedes and Scots packed into Akva, a Swedish bar in Edinburgh’s west end, to watch the match.

                There was Swedish bunting and flags, with many fans wearing the side’s yellow strip.

                A faulty connection added to the tension outside in the beer garden, where supporters groaned as the large screen showing the game repeatedly cut off.

                Eerie photos reveal empty streets, motorways with no traffic and a soulless Bluewater shopping centre during Three Lions clash

                With so many watching the match, the nation will come to a halt with roads, high streets and train stations likely to be empty during the quarter-final, which will be shown live on BBC1.

                The RAC said it expects ‘the quietest Saturday afternoon of the year, with deserted roads.’

                Shopping centres such as London’s Oxford Street – one of the world’s most famous shopping destinations – are also expected to be quieter than they typically would be on a Saturday afternoon

                Elsewhere, shops and streets were deserted as everyone headed to the nearest screen to catch the game.

                Bluewater in Kent, one of the country’s biggest shopping centres was like a ghost town.

                The usually bustling indoor shopping street saw barely anyone frequent the big name high street chains such as Waterstones, House of Fraser and Urban Outfitters.
