Mark Wright has indicated he will streak if England beat Scotland – but will block his Scottish stepfather’s phone number “for at least a month” if they lose.
The 34-year-old TV presenter, who married Brassic star Michelle Keegan in 2015, intends to take her kit and sprint to the Wembley pitch if England beat Scotland in their clash at Euro 2020 Group D on Friday evening. Will go
The former professional footballer currently serves as co-host of Sky Sports News’ Euro 2020 coverage, presenting Good Morning Euro alongside Bela Shah.
Mark revealed: “I’m going to play at Wembley … I saw the 1996 game at Wembley when Gaza scored that goal at Euro. It was a moment I’ll never forget.
Reflecting on the excitement of that iconic moment, he admitted to The Sun: “If Phil Foden or Jack Grealish could be our modern day Gaza tonight and I’m here to see it, it would be a dream come true. Reality I could streak in the field.
However, he acknowledged that there was tension between the Keegan and Wright families, as Mitchell’s father is Scottish and “and he wants Scotland to win in a big way”, so from the start of the match they would “taunt each other”. So many”.

He continued: “If England wins they’ll be ribbed, and if we lose their numbers will be blocked for at least a month. I’ll never live it. I’m going to love him – in the meantime hate him
The former Crowley Town player – who has also been part of West Ham and Arsenal youth squads – has explained the pair’s passionate football rivalry.
“It’s a crazy thing but an amazing thing that we both want to work so hard, the rivalry is so big between Scotland and England.
“But it’s about football shirts and the players wearing them, not the country, because at the end of the day we love each other.”
He also made it clear that he loved his stepfather “to the end”, despite his opposing teams for the football game.

“But as far as the game goes, we will have Anthony Joshua looking forward because of how prepared and excited we are.”
Mark’s boss is also Scottish at Sky Sports News, the former Towie star said, so we can’t wait to see how he reacts to the severing of his football-crazy employee in the name of (possible) victory . .
