And celebrities who didn’t manage to scoop a ticket to Wembley also made sure to show their support and get behind the players as they tuned into the fixture at home.

Danielle Lloyd revealed she was watching the match while kicking back in her living room, rocking a pair of fluffy Louis Vuitton sliders while her little boy danced infront of the TV.

While Paul Knightley and his son Paul sported matching England kits ahead of kick off, with the proud dad optimistically declaring ‘It’s coming home’ in the caption to the sweet snap.

Victoria Beckham, whose former England player husband David was at Wembley for the game, also treated fans to another throwback from her days cheering him on in the stands.

But before kick off fans booed both countries’ national anthems as well as when both teams took the knee in a show against racism.

It comes after 20,000 Scottish fans turned London into mayhem over the last two days, with punters fighting, stripping naked and swimming in public fountains.

Police admitted they had to ‘flexibly’ manage the huge swathe of Scotland fans who took over the West End earlier on Friday with no social distancing, showering any England supporters brave enough to go near them with beer.  

Earlier in the day, Scottish football fans parted to allow the Three Lions fans walk past – then tossed booze over them as they hurried by and let off blue and white smoke flares chanting: ‘I’d hate to be English’.

The Tartan Army had been in the pub at 10am, trashing central London and leaving the capital’s landmarks strewn with detritus having completely ignored pleas from Mayor Sadiq Khan and the Met Police to stay away.

They flouted a Scotland Yard two-day order warning them not congregate in the West End from 3pm yesterday – and instead they partied in Leicester Square where they danced in fountains they filled with foam into the night.

On Friday afternoon, officers admitted defeat in trying to move on the fans and said they would implement a ‘flexible policing plan… to reduce the likelihood of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour’. 

Chief inspector Joe Stokoe said: ‘We have contingency plans to deal with any number of potential incidents as they arise but my message is clear: if you don’t have ticket to the matches, fan zone or officially booked into a pub, bar or club, please do not come to London – you could end up missing the game.
