But former sports minister Richard Caborn told The Times: “I hope any England fan in Italy, or able to get out there from another country, pulls out all the stops to get to Rome, within the rules of course.

But there are a small number of exceptions to the rules which allow people to waive the quarantine and testing requirements.

Penalties for breaking Italy’s lockdown regulations are severe.

There is no exemption from quarantine for people travelling by car, who are allowed to spend up to 72 hours transiting the country, but can’t stop.

England fans who secured tickets to the big clash have been left devastated by the new quarantine rules.

Warrick Howard, from Leicestershire, bought his in 2019 for £120 but now won’t be able to attend.

Él dijo: “Given the huge push to have everyone vaccinated there were ways of making this work for fans attending this tournament, but Uefa and the EU have made no effort to do so.

I guess they were too busy organising thousands of ‘no quarantine requiredexemptions for their couple of thousand VIPs.

I thought about flying out to Italy on Sunday June 27 and doing my five-day quarantine in an AirBnB apartment so I’d be free for the game if England did make it through… but that would have required a week off work.
