Adele was one of the celebrities who expressed their condolences to England after their tragic loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.
The side of Gareth Southgate scored early on but lost on penalties after extra time.
Notwithstanding the sadness, several of the UK’s most well-known figures have spoken out in support of the team.
Adele watched the final from the United States and afterwards uploaded a selfie of herself wearing an England shirt.
The London-born singer wrote, “You did us so proud!”
“You took our game home and brought us all together.” “All the boys made us so proud!!!! Well done on such a wonderful game!” said Dua Lipa, with a photo of Bukayo Saka.
“We love you England, we’ll bring it home soon enough,” former Oasis star Liam Gallagher said in a message of solidarity for Saka, who, along with teammates Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford, has been the target of racist abuse after his penalty was saved by Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
“It’s all fine Bruv I love you kid we go and destroy the World Cup,” Gallagher wrote, adding, “It’s all good Bruv I love you kid we go and smash the World Cup.”
“Heads up, England!” says the narrator.
“There’s so much to be proud of,” actor Orlando Bloom wrote.
“You are a team to beat, a team we love and support, and a team we respect,” Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movie, tweeted with a photo of himself looking unhappy while wearing an England shirt.
But I warn you, unless biotech comes up with anything spectacular, I’ll be dead in no time…” wrote Stephen Fry.
“Congratulations, Italy.” “Bah, grr, poo, and bother.”
Thank you, Gareth, and thank you, guys.
Nigella Lawson stated, “You made us proud.”
I respect every player that takes the initiative and displays the courage to take a penalty in such a crucial game.
Especially when they’re only 19, 21, and 23 years old.
Piers Morgan wrote, “Proud of you,” tagging Saka, Sancho, and Rashford.
You missed, and we lost, but you all have guts.” Associated Press contributed additional reporting.
