That is the patriotic message from a house in Gorleston that is covered with England flags to help drum up World Cup fever.

James Webb, 27, and his partner Kaylie Tilley have adorned their home on the Magdalen estate with about 20 flags and a giant football.

It has taken the couple about five days to deck out their home in support of Gareth Southgate and his team, which are on a World Cup roll after beating Panama 6-1 on Sunday.

Some of their neighbours are also getting in the act as well by dressing up their homes with the flag of St George.

Mr Webb said: “I have been out getting bits and pieces for it. At the end of the day I support England and wanted to do something.

“People are loving it. I hope we can go all the way now.”
