Front pages mark England victory after daily runs Danish headline

Ahead of yesterday’s game, the Sunderland Echo splashed on the headline ‘Fodbold kommer hjem’, which is Danish for ‘Football’s coming home’.

The Echo interviewed a Danish fan of Sunderland AFC ahead of the game and also featured a match prediction from a “psychic pony”.
