Spoon-bender Uri Geller gives England fans bizarre instructions to help Three Lions win World Cup
| Last updated
England are just a matter of minutes away from their first match of the World Cup in Qatar.
Harry and the lads will kick off their tournament by taking on Iran at Khalifa International stadium this afternoon (21 November).
And while fans can't control what happens on the pitch, Uri Geller has urged them to do everything they can to help the team to victory.
Speaking to the Daily Star, the 75-year-old psychic said if we follow his strict instructions, England will have a great chance of taking all three points. Right then.
He said: "To all the English players and fans, this is what you should do…
"Create a target goal in your mind and word it clearly. Repeat the target over and over, believe that you are going to win, and forbid any other ideas from distracting you.
“Imagine how you will feel when England wins and visualise the details vividly.
“Shout and speak clearly, don't mumble. How else do you expect the team to feel you and hear you?”
Ahead of the rest of England's games in the tournament, Geller also said it's vital that fans start preparing for the matches the night before.
And he says it also helps to make sure you've got your lucky shirt on.
"I instruct all fans that before you go to sleep, you should run the target words through your mind three times, 'Win, Win, Win'," he said.
"Only the England fans can do this, no one else can do it for you. Seize the responsibility and go for it.
“I know it's a bit far out and quirky, but I believe in it.”
He went on: "I appeal to you to bring all your items that you believe bring you good luck, because that item becomes a tool for your own mind.
"I'm not a miracle worker and I'm not a prophet. We all have mind power and an ability to unleash our positive thinking and influence a match."
Away from the result of the match, it was revealed this morning that England would not be wearing the One Love armbands at this year's World Cup after FIFA threatened sanctions.
The UK football captains were expected to wear the badges in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community, despite Qatar’s harsh penalties on same-sex relationships.
However, an FA statement shared today (21 November) claimed they were unable to do so after FIFA said it would 'impose sporting sanctions' if they wore the rainbow armbands on the pitch.
The Football Association said: "FIFA has been very clear that it will impose sporting sanctions if our captains wear the armbands on the field of play.
"Our players and coaches are disappointed – they are strong supporters of inclusion and will show support in other ways."
