It’s a far cry from our glory days with Jack Charlton and it will be a different nation (the old enemy) holding its breath this weekend, but George Hamilton will be there, and no matter how we feel about England and their national team, we’ll be tuned in too.

Whether it’s to roar on the Germans, the Danes and, tomorrow, the Italians, or to keep a close eye on players from Premier League clubs we support, England matches are box office, according to RTÉ commentator Hamilton.
