A CHESTER FC fan has spoken of the "elation" inside Wembley Stadium last night after England booked their place in the final of the European Championships.

Season ticket holder Danny McNally said he was "privileged" to have been among the 60,000-plus crowd as the Three Lions beat Denmark 2-1 to seal their first appearance in a major tournament final since 1966.

The 20-year-old, whose last live match was watching the Blues at the Deva Stadium at the end last year, told The Standard: "My ears are still ringing!

"I don't have a ticket for the final so it will be difficult to ever top that. It was just elation at full time. Everywhere you looked people couldn't quite believe it.

"I'm only 20 so I'm quite lucky to see England in a final so young. There were people around me who have waited a lifetime for this moment."

Chester and District Standard:

Danny, who lives in Vicars Cross, was among a group of four Chester FC fans who travelled down to London after his step dad, who has a ticket for the final, secured him a seat on Sunday.

He added: "When they scored I'd just got my phone out for the first time in the game and ended up recording the goal! There was just silence in the stadium. People had their hands on their heads.

"You're then thinking this is England – we're not meant to come back from one goal down in a semi final but there is something different about this England team, there is a real togetherness there.

"When our goals went in you just can't describe how it felt. It was something special and I was privileged to have witnessed it."

Danny and his mate James Harrison took an England flag with Chester FC on it and said he spotted a couple of other Blues banners around the stadium.

"I saw a few familiar faces on Wembley Way", he added: "It was nice to see Chester fans at the game. I spotted a few Chester flags further down from where we were sat. There were quite a few."
