We’re all counting down the hours until we find out if the Three Lions are bringing home the UEFA Euro 2020 cup.
England fans have been dreaming of this moment for more than 50 years and will finally know on Sunday night (July 11).
As football mania grips Britain, England fans across the country have been asking their smart speakers a very important question… is football coming home?
You can rely on Amazon Alexa to tell you the weather, whether your favourite supermarket is still open and how much traffic to expect on your commute, but can she predict the Euro 2020 final result?
It seems Alexa is as optimistic as the rest of us as she says: “Oh my giddy aunt, after fifty-five years of hurt, football really might be coming home at last.
“It’s so close I can smell it, and it smells amazing” – before breaking into chants of Eng-er-land.
Earlier in the week before the game against Denmark, Alexa did have another take on it, as reported by WalesOnline.
She said then: “O M G, maybe football really is coming home this time. The tension is killing me.”
And after the Germany game on June 29, Alexa proclaimed: “Football just two goals closer to coming home.”
It’s not the first time Alexa has had her say on the news of the day. During Line of Duty’s latest season on BBC One, she kept fans updated with teasers on DCI Jo Davidson and who the identity of the mysterious H is.

However, as with the Line Of Duty, there is one very clear line Alexa doesn’t cross. She never gives a definitive answer, and never says it IS coming home.
You can watch England go head to head with Italy in Wembley Stadium for the Euro 2020 final on Sunday, July 11 at 8pm on BBC One or BBC iPlayer.
