They filled the bars along the streets leading to the Stade de Velodrome.

The atmosphere was electric as they sang anthems and songs like “Sweet Caroline,” transforming the French city into an English haven for a day.

Tough Challenge for the Red Roses

England faced a challenging match against the Flying Fijians, who had previously defeated them at Twickenham earlier in the year.

The fans expressed optimism about England’s chances, with some donning knight costumes for the event.
