William presented the team shirt to each player on his surprise visit and wished them luck. He said the whole country will root for the national football team to bring home the World Cup. Incidentally, England has been in a World Cup drought since 1966.
“I’m really here to point out that the rest of the country is behind you,” the prince told the team.
“We’re all with you, enjoy.”
It is understood that England manager Gareth Southgate invited the prince to the visit. The national team manager introduced the prince to the team and said, “What we have to do is ask His Royal Highness to present you with your shirts.”
