·2-min read

Tom Cruise FaceTimed the English soccer stars ahead of their Euro 2020 final defeat in London on Sunday.

The actor, who has at home in England, reached out to team captain Harry Kane and the rest of the squad to wish them all luck.

Harry told BBC Radio 5 Live, "We actually had Tom Cruise get in touch, you get everyone who loves football. We were fortunate enough to watch one of his films, so I think he was over here in the U.K. and he just dialled in and FaceTimed us just to wish us the best..., so that was nice of him."

Cruise showed up for the game and was spotted sitting next to David Beckham.

Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth II wrote a letter to manager Gareth Southgate, stating she was "fortunate" to present the World Cup to soccer icon Bobby Moore in 1966, adding she saw "what it meant to the players, management and support staff to reach and win the final of a major international football tournament".

She added: "I want to send my congratulations and that of my family to you all on reaching the final of the European Championships."

Her grandson, Prince William, who has attended England's Euro 2020 games and was among the crowd at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday, also shared his excitement at getting to see his country in the final of the major football tournament.

William, who is president of the Football Association, said: "Gareth (Southgate), Harry (Kane), and to every member of the England team on and off the pitch, I just want to wish you the very best of luck for tonight. What a team performance it’s been. Every member of the squad has played their part, and all the back room team as well have been truly essential.

"I can’t really believe this is happening. So exciting and I just wish you the very best of luck. You bring out the very best of England and we are all behind you. The whole country is behind you. So, bring it home."

Ed Sheeran, Idris Elba and Rita Ora were also among the stars wishing the England team luck ahead of their game against Italy.

Despite all the well wishes, England lost the game on penalties after tying 1-1 with Italy at the end of two hours of soccer.

Meanwhile, Cruise also attended another big sports final on Sunday – he checked out the Wimbledon clash between tennis greats Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini.

The Hollywood superstar returned to The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for the second day in a row after he watched Ashleigh Barty defeat Karolína Plíšková in the ladies' final on Saturday, when he was accompanied by Hayley Atwell, his co-star in the upcoming Mission: Impossible film and actress Pom Klementieff.
