“If the World Cup dream lives anywhere in the UK, it’s got to be on this street in Oldham,” says Sky Sports reporter Ben Ransom.

The street, officially known as Wales Street, has been changed to England Street for the World Cup, with flags and bunting dominating the road.

One local resident told Ben that it started as a joke around 10 years ago, but has since become tradition.
