Hundreds of Geordies have descended on Newcastle city centre for England's first match of Euro 2020.

And fans are already full of voice - belting out some classic England songs.

At Central Park, they came out in force. Dressed in their kits, there were plenty of smiles as they danced to One Step Beyond by Madness.

And there were also a big match atmosphere at Paddy Park.

The new temporary Quayside venue, at the Riverside, has been created as a special fan zone for the tournament.

And despite tickets costing £25 each for England games, ChronicleLive understands it is a sell-out.

Almost 500 fans will be roaring on the Three Lions on Sunday, and hopes are high England can go all the way in the tournament.

One of the pre-tournament favourites with the bookies, Gareth Southgate has one of the best England squads in years to work with.

And fans will be desperate to see them lift the trophy - ending what is now almost 50 years of hurt.

The Paddy Park fan zone is screening every game of the tournament and, besides England matches, entry is free.

It opened on Friday, for the Italy vs Turkey game, after a last-minute deal was struck with police and Newcastle City Council to allow commentary to be played.

That followed concerns over “loud cheering and/or collective groaning” from England fans.

Let's hope there is plenty of cheering everywhere at full-time!
