ENGLAND will be involved in the final of Euro 2004.
And it's Huddersfield Town fan Andrew Kaye who will be making certain the club and country will be in the spotlight.
Andrew, 32, is the England fan with the giant flag which dominated England's televised games in the big soccer tournament.
He grabbed centre stage with the 20ft by 10ft flag, draped right behind the goals for England's matches - in full view of the world's TV cameras.
Now, Andrew is soaking up the sun in Portugal and getting ready to take his place for the final at the Estadia da Luz in Lisbon on July 4.
"It's a shame England won't be there - but I will," said Andrew, who flew to Portugal for the tournament on June 12.
"I got tickets for all the England games and the semi-finals and final, and I'm having a great time.
"I've followed Town for 20 years, but started supporting England home and away six years ago. To be honest, I follow the country more than the club now," added Andrew.
"There is a great atmosphere and a great camaraderie at England games. We get to know each other and meet up again and again.
"I'm out here with a pal, Darren Sheridan, from Bradford, and we have met a number of other Town fans, including Barry Burgess.
"I got the flag some months ago and I make sure I'm at the stadium early to get a good spot. When England met Portugal, I was there three hours before kick-off and there was a rush to get the best places for the flags."
Andrew, a builder, lives with parents Margaret and Ronald in Prospect Road, Longwood. He started planning his Euro 2004 campaign the day England qualified.
He is enjoying the friendly atmosphere and banter with opposing fans and has already added to his collection of scarves with souvenirs from Swiss, French and Portuguese fans.
"The sad note was the death of the English fan in Lisbon but that was nothing to do with fans. There were gangs of pickpockets roaming all over. My friend had his bag containing 800 euros - about £500 - and a camera stolen.
"Other than that, it has been very friendly."
And Andrew's tip for the final? "I think it will be the Czech Republic v Portugal - and I hope Portugal win, even though they knocked us out!"
