Netherlands 1-2 England

Mark Hunter, the leader of Stockport Council, has released a statement about Phil Foden, Kobbie Mainoo and Cole Palmer, who all went to school in Stockport and have played their part in England’s success.

Foden went to Bridge Hall Primary
and Stockport Academy, Mainoo
attended Cheadle Catholic Infants and Juniors and St James High School, and although Palmer grew up in Wythenshawe – part of Manchester City Council – he went to school just the other side of the boundary line at Gatley
Primary.

“We may be slightly
biased but we believe that Stockport is a very special place to produce
talent such as Stockport’s very own Three Lions in Phil Foden, Kobbie Mainoo
and Cole Palmer, who are on the verge of sporting greatness and looking towards
success over Spain in the final on Sunday,” the statement read.

“Stockport is
incredibly proud of all of its hometown heroes and has championed Phil Foden
for a number of years, so we’re delighted to see Kobbie and Cole join Phil in
becoming yet another alumni of Stockport to become an England international.

“We wish our
young Three Lions and the rest of the England team the very best for Sunday –
Stockport is behind you!”
