A decorator and girls football coach from Saxmundham has transformed his front door into a huge England flag ahead of tonight's game against Denmark — as he is confident his country will secure a spot in the finals. 

Rob Dann, a father-of-two and full-time decorator, paints his front door as the country's trademark red and white flag each time his home country make it into a big tournament. 

He has been doing the tradition since 2016, turning his door red and white for Euro games and World Cup clashes.

"I'm a huge football fan and I love the Euros," said Mr Dann.
