Mark, who owns his own painting and decorating business and is known to his friends as Pressy, has followed England all over the world, but admits that this particular trip was extra special.

He said: “I’ve really been looking forward to coming to the Amazon and I’m going to take the opportunity to see some of the county while I’m here.”

He is staying in Brazil for the must-win game against Uruguay, before heading back home to wife Lynn and daughter Cora, seven.

He will return for the final... If England get there.

He said: “It’s a fantastic country and I really enjoyed the game against Italy.

“Even though we lost we played very well.”
