Still flying the flag high in West Norfolk even after last night's defeat (11th July).

England fans really thought it was coming home after the Three Lions took an early lead against Croatia in the World Cup.

But sadly the celebrations across our county wouldn't last.

England would eventually slip to a 2-1 defeat in extra-time.

But despite that disappointment - fans in King's Lynn were so proud of all their efforts out in Russia.

KLFM's Chris Craddock spoke to supporters after the match:

 

You can hear what it meant to supporters

 

World Cup fever has clearly gripped West Norfolk.

The surprise success of England who made it all the way to our first semi-final since 1990 had people celebrating up and down the county.

And to honour his work in getting us there - KLFM and Norfolk County Council have renamed the Southgates Roundabout in King's Lynn and it's now the Gareth Southgates Roundabout!
