ENGLAND and Wales fans are serenaded by pop legend Chesney Hawkes during their World Cup match.

The home teams meet in the final and decisive round of Group B matches in Qatar tonight.

But the mood is lifted by a halftime show from Hawkes – who will be appearing on his first stadium show shortly THIRTY Years.

During an appearance on talkSPORT, the ‘One and Only’ star said: “You asked me what can I say?

“This is my first appearance in the stadium in 30 years.”

Hawkes, 51, added: “I’m a little nervous but I’m just more excited.

“It’s just the one song and I don’t have to guess what song I’m going to do. I could probably sing this song in my sleep.”

Footy fans were stunned by Hawkes’ planned show and one said: “Just heard it [Jordan] Henderson to play and Chesney Hawkes to play at halftime only about buzz [Gareth] south gate open.

Another said: “So Chesney Hawkes will be performing #IamTheOneAndOnly ahead of the #BattleOfBritain #ENGWAL tonight.

“It can’t be that bad for him!”


And another said: “Chesney Hawkes’ appearance at half-time in a World Cup match between England and Wales in Qatar in 2022 sounds like an amusing throwaway detail someone would put in a 90’s cyberpunk novel to be written in the future.” plays.

England will look to top Group B after a lackluster draw against the USA last Friday with a win over the Welsh at Al Rayyan’s Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.

Hawkes said of England’s campaign so far: “It’s really a two-half game, isn’t it?

“Because we made them look like a pub team in the first game and it was amazing.

“After that game we said, ‘Wow, we’re going to win the World Cup.’

“The second game, obviously a very different game. It felt like we were playing for a draw.

“It was kind of very muted, but maybe that’s the gameplay of Gareth [Southgate].

“You know it was just kind of a game for that tie, just don’t let anyone get hurt.”

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has made four changes from the side that drew a gap against the United States.

Southgate has opted to start Kyle Walker, Jordan Henderson, Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford for the Battle of Britain with the Welsh.
