THEY may be coming home but England’s boys still have the backing of these loyal supporters.

Children at St Aidan’s CofE Primary School, in Loyalty Road, in Hartlepool, are not giving up on the team which has one last match in the World Cup.

Although Roy Hodgson’s team can not progress to the next stage, they will be hoping to better their results against Italy and Uruguay when they take on Costa Rica, and they will have the St Aidan’s students behind them to back them all the way.

Children will gather in the school hall to watch the match which has a 5pm kick-off.

The idea of bringing all the pupils together was the brainchild of the school’s sports coach Jonny Murray.

At half time, there is a swapping station where anyone who has been collecting World Cup stickers can swap theirs with other people.

The school is also taking part in Sports Week, where each class is given a World Cup country and takes on a project to do with that country.

It’s not been the England dream the children were hoping for, but they’re still loving every minute of their World Cup experience.

Even after England’s Brazilian adventure ends, the St Aidan’s children will still have World Cup fever.

They’ll be back in the school hall next Monday to watch the match between the Group E winners and the Group F runners-up.
