Mother's Day: Jesse Lingard and Chris Smalling's mums reveal their childhood secrets

By Edward Dracott

Mother’s Day is about sharing quality time with your mum – but for just a second, let’s make it about football instead.

England play Lithuania in World Cup qualifying at 5pm this Mothering Sunday – what more could mothers want – and before the game England internationals Chris Smalling and Jesse Lingard have been given a quiz in the spirit of the day.

England’s main sponsor, Vauxhall, caught up with the Manchester United pair’s mums beforehand to reveal a few secrets about their childhood – take a look.

So there you have it. Smalling once prank-called the police and Lingard had a thing for Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) from Coronation Street.

If that doesn’t say “Happy Mother’s Day” then what does, really?
