It may not have been a win for England in their first game in the World Cup on Saturday, but Ilkeston folk are keeping their fingers crossed for a better result tonight.

Our pictures shows children at Cotmanhay Junior School during a non-uniform day in which they wore England football shirts to show support for the team ahead of their first game.

The children also took part in a range of World Cup themed activities throughout the day.

Head teacher at the school Simon Robinson, said: “Some of the kids have been researching Brazil in geography lessons and making fact files about the different countries that are taking part.

“They have also been making flags of the countries in art and design and making game cards.

“We have basically used the World Cup as an opportunity to do geography projects.

“The year six children are doing an on-going project based around the tournament and will also be writing newspaper reports.”

England are set to play Uruguay tonight (Thursday June 19) following a 2-1 defeat to Italy in Group D.

If they win they will take a huge step towards qualification for the next round.

They will also face the final team in their group, Costa Rica, on Tuesday night.
