Thousands of England fans have produced a rendition of Neil Diamond's classic hit Sweet Caroline so good that it has gone viral. Trust me, this is worth a watch.

Gareth Southgate's side will come up against in-form Italy on Sunday evening after they beat Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Ukraine and Denmark on their journey to the European Championship final.

There will be around 60,000 fans inside Wembley tonight as they try and lift their first piece of silverware since 1966 and to celebrate, a mass of England supporters have gathered outside the stadium. Is 2pm too early? Absolutely not.

As you can see in the fan footage above, thousands of excited fans are filmed singing the unofficial Euro 2020 anthem - a tune that rang around Wembley Stadium when the Three Lions secured a place in the final.

In fact, that footage of England players celebrating their 2-1 win over Denmark with 60,000 fans also went viral on Wednesday night.

All 26 players, as well as the coaching staff, belted out the classic hit with supporters in the stadium.

Wembley's resident DJ, Tony Perry, came out and apologised to Northern Ireland fans after playing Sweet Caroline inside the stadium this week.

"To be honest what the idea behind it was, and the wonderful people of Northern Ireland I've got an opportunity to apologise to you, because it was never my intention to do that to you," he told BBC Radio Ulster.

"My definition, my role at the games is to be neutral. So for the Scots we played 'Yes sir I can boogie' for the Italians we played their anthems. And when England beat Germany we played Sweet Caroline in the pre-match build up and both sets of fans reacted to it like crazy."

He continued, saying: "England's song should forever be 'Three Lions' but we don't want to take anything away from the wonderful people of Northern Ireland, but at that moment I just felt 'do you know what I'm just going to hit play on Sweet Caroline' because I think it will do a better job than 'Vindaloo' at that particular time.

"The sentiment was coming out of a pandemic, Gareth Southgate laying to rest the ghosts of Euro 96. I'm sorry guys if it's taken a bit of a runaway now, I do apologise."
