Fabian, 28, has vowed to be at the birth no matter what after getting permission from manager Gareth Southgate to leave the England camp the moment his wife goes into labour.

"He had faith in me to play me against Malta for my debut and I can only thank him for that and ever since then I have kicked on and done well".

But Lingard, like many of his team-mates, did not get to this point the easy way.

Attendees underwent security checks at the entrance, with children given a Three Lions gift bag by volunteers. "I'm a defender first and foremost, and if I'm playing right centre-half I am even more of a defender than the wing-backs".
