So. Much. Excitement

Flags will be waved, faces with be painted, nails will be bitten – but what if the residents of ITV drama Downton Abbey were to watch Wayne Rooney and co take to the pitch…


The excitement for the start of the game would be palpable. Flags and foam hands everywhere.


The National Anthem would inspire bucket loads of patriotism


All eyes would be on the game at all times


There would be wild celebrations when a goal was scored


Things would perk up when it was half time and everyone thought Thierry Henry was coming on screen


Then they’d remember tonight’s game is on ITV


Everyone would pull the I-could-do-better-than-that-with-my-eyes-closed face when England misses from a corner


Some could work on a goal celebration for if we do eventually score


Before lying down in a darkened room when extra time is added because it’s Just. Too. Stressful.
