This weekend many of us will be heading out to watch England play in a major final for the first time in 55 years.
Hospitality businesses are booking up quickly, with residents heading out to their favourite beer garden, or getting comfortable on their sofa in anticipation.
And many will burn a lot of energy as they scream ‘It’s Coming Home’ at the top of their voice, and hopefully dance around their living room as England score.
So, with that being said the perfect food to order in and complement the game is a hard decision.
