England take on Denmark this evening (Wednesday) at Wembley for the semi-finals of Euro 2020.

The winner will face on Italy in the final after they beat Spain on penalties following a fascinating 120 minutes at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate's side have a strong Yorkshire contingent, including Leeds' own Kalvin Phillips, Barnsley-born John Stones and Sheffield trio Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Yorkshire Tea is no stranger to making a noise on social media.

In contrast to Tetley, whose stereotypical Yorkshire cartoon characters disguise the brand’s Indian ownership – it now belongs to the same conglomerate as Tata Steel – Yorkshire Tea is still produced in Harrogate by the family firm that founded it 40 years ago.

Yorkshire Tea was launched as “a Yorkshire blend for Yorkshire people”, but increased advertising and better distribution in recent years, coupled with the product’s sponsorship of the England cricket team, have given it a national profile.
