Bibi Ana Martinez from the coastal city of Buenaventura agreed. We'll smile and be happy and say "Well done lads". "Some have slept in parks or bus stations but they made sure they are here".

Of all the England World Cup games broadcast on the network over the last 20 years, the team had only won one.
