So Elland Road hosted an England game, and the atmosphere was terrific.
Plenty of people on Twitter, even a lot of fans from other teams, complemented the Leeds faithful and Elland Road for a cracking, passionate atmosphere.
Elland Road atmosphere markedly better than Wembley... still hindered by that bloody band— Gary Gowers (@Gary_Gowers) June 7, 2018
No wonder the FA are selling Wembley. Elland Road has got a much better atmosphere.— John Cross (@johncrossmirror) June 7, 2018
Atmosphere in Leeds sounds incredible. Raucous. Vocal. Passionate. Hoping to link up with a few Leeds fans in Russia. Some of the best fans in England. Putting Wembley to shame. AF— AZAK FEVER (@AzakFever49AFC) June 7, 2018
Even the Chairman got in on the Tweeting action.
And yeah, have England play a game every year in Leeds, we’ll take the cash.
