As we fast approach England's first group match, local Vauxhall dealer, Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall is encouraging parents in Cornwall to embrace the football fever, after a survey by the car-maker, The England Team Sponsor, revealed that kids in Truro and Falmouth are more confident of England's performance than their parents*.
Indeed, kids are more optimistic of England winning this summer's football tournament, with 25% in Truro and Falmouth, predicting the team will make it to the final, compared to 13% of parents and 14% of children believing England will lift the trophy, compared to 5% of parents.
Encouragingly however, parents and kids both display a high level of support for England, with 91% of parents and 86% of children in Truro and Falmouth saying they will be getting behind the team this summer.
Brett Willey, Retail Operator at Truro and Falmouth Vauxhall, comments: "With the attention well and truly on the England team, after their recent victory against Norway, there's never been a better time for parents and their families to join us in getting into the football spirit.
"Like the kids in Truro and Falmouth, we too are confident England will be scoring a fair few successes on the pitch this summer!"
With more parents than kids expected to watch the England team on television, it would seem that whilst kids are more optimistic about the national team's chances, parents are still planning to give the team their full attention this June.
And in true supporter style, respondents in Truro and Falmouth aren't concerned about the prospect of any England matches going to penalties, with 86% of parents and kids agreeing that England perform well regardless of whether they are involved in a shoot-out.
Brett Willey, concludes: "As part of Vauxhall's sponsorship of the England Team, we're really proud of the team and excited about their prospects.
"We'd like to encourage everyone in Cornwall to join us in showing their support for the boys. Also, keep an eye out for the new Vauxhall England TV advert, celebrating the brand's support for the English nation, airing for the first time on Saturday 2nd June."
