People are selling tickets for England’s World Cup quarter final against France for almost £10,000.

The Three Lions will play the current holders after they beat Senegal 3-0, while Didier Deschamps’ side secured their passage to the last eight with a win against Poland.

Around 9,500 England supporters are expected to attend the game at the Al Bay Stadium on Saturday night as they look to reach the semi finals of a major tournament for a third consecutive time.

With some of the biggest names on display, people are desperate to attend what is probably the tie of the round on paper.

As per the Daily Mail, almost 800 tickets have appeared on re-sale sites, with some being sold for almost 28 times over their face value.

A pair of category two tickets (which are £175 each at face value) are being listed for as much as £5,000 each with a booking fee of £709 on top.

In addition to this, those who buy tickets will also have to sort flights and accommodation in the Gulf State before travelling over. This has now been made slightly easier as fans will no longer need a match ticket to get the necessary Hayya immigration permit to enter the country.

Despite preparing to come up against one of the strongest teams in the competition, England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is confident he and his teammates can beat the reigning champions.

We know it’s going to be a tough game, but it’s World Cup football,” he said. “You’ve got to relish these moments. You’ve got to take every chance you get. You might not get another chance to beat France.”
