Robbie Fowler & Emile Heskey

The quite brilliant Banqueting Suite at Edgbaston Stadium was the venue for the Birmingham Euro 2024 Big Screen Event. A live Big Screen showing England’s second Euro 2024 fixture against Denmark the focal point of the occasion, along with our incredible special guests.

The stars joining us for the day were none other than former Liverpool and England striker Robbie Fowler and Leicester, Liverpool and England forward Emile Heskey. These top players boasting no less than 88 England caps between them, plus an incredible 1092 club games! Discussion began on their individual careers, with a range of fascinating and often hilarious stories lighting up the event and engaging the audience, the atmosphere in the room was buoyant throughout! Prolific Premier League scorer Robbie did mention that he would have liked to have achieved, and probably deserved, more England caps, and that he felt somewhat overlooked by the England managers of his time.

On the chances of the current England team our guests talked about the incredible array of attacking talent at manager Gareth Southgate’s disposal, who they felt would be England’s key players, particularly referencing Jude Bellingham after his unbelievable season lighting up the World of football for Real Madrid. Plus, they discussed how they felt England would grow into the tournament to become contenders as the front players begin to click. They also briefly discussed which other teams were in with a great chance this time around and which players they thought might make a real impact as the tournament progressed.

Along with the entertaining football talk, sporting hospitality of the highest standard was on offer, with the food and drink at Edgbaston as good as ever and the atmosphere around the venue buzzing!

Guests then watched the national team’s second group match, as England played Denmark looking to win the game and confirm qualification at the top of their group. After the match, which finished with a 1-1 draw, England’s goal scored by their all-time top scorer Harry Kane, the guests discussed the performance and how England can look to improve as they continue in the competition. The draw having almost certainly confirmed England’s progress as they head into the final group fixture.
