The government is reportedly considering an additional bank holiday on Monday if England wins the euro.
The Three Lions reached the final after beating Denmark 2-1 in extra time last night.
The Gareth Southgate men will face Italy on Sunday evening when they have the chance to win England’s first major tournament since the 1966 World Cup.
The match began at 8 a.m. The government confirmed earlier this week that licensing rules would be relaxed to allow the game to remain open until 11:15 a.m. in case of overtime and fines.
And with England now confirmed to be finalists, news is coming in this morning that if the team wins, the country could get an extra bank holiday.

According to Politico, ministers and senior government officials discussed late last night how a possible victory could be celebrated.
Some people think that a national holiday on Monday is the best idea when it is unlikely that any work will be done anyway.
Explaining the extent of last-minute change will present logistical challenges.
According to Politico, in any case, government officials believe that if Hurricane and co-hosts pick up the trophy, they should “celebrate National Day.”
There is also speculation as to whether players such as manager Gareth Southgate and Rahim Sterling are in line for the Knight Huds, regardless of the outcome.
Sterling, 26, already has an MBE and has been England’s standout player for the tournament.
