But the Met Office is warning that we might see some drama in our skies, as well as that taking place on the pitch in the evening.

The forecaster says bursts of heavy rain and thunderstorms threaten to dampen festivities in some parts of the North West as it issues a 'yellow weather warning' for the region.

Preston BID, who have organised the Euro Fan Zone at Flag Market, has even ordered 600 ponchos as a precaution for supporters with tickets to watch England on the big screen outside the Harris Museum.
