England's opening game at Euro 2024 had an "electric" atmosphere and was like playing a home game, according to one Midlands football fan.

The team beat Serbia 1-0 and Lynda Courts, from Redditch, Worcestershire, said it was one of the best games she has ever been to for atmosphere.

The Birmingham City fan arrived at the Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen three hours before kick-off.

"It was like being at Wembley, to be honest. You did not realise you were in Germany," she said.

"The atmosphere was absolutely electric, it was one of the best games I have been to for atmosphere.
