IT'S EVERY BOY'S DREAM COME TRUE - THEY'RE LEADING OUT ENGLAND!
Every schoolboy's dream is to become a reality for 14-year-olds Simon Davies and Jack Sherlock in two weeks' time.
The Wallasey school friends are to be flagbearers in the build-up to England's opening match against Sweden on June 2.
The youngsters will carry the England flag onto the pitch in front of millions of TV viewers.
Simon, whose favourite England player is David Beckham, said: ``We are both dead excited about it.
``We fly into Tokyo two days before the game. Before the game we are going to Disneyland. We then do a rehearsal a couple of hours before kickoff and meet the players,'' he said.
Simon and Jack won the trip after Simon's father, Tony, entered a contest in a newspaper.
