WATCH: Passengers celebrate England World Cup win aboard Emirates flight
This has to be the most unique place to watch the tournament that we’ve seen yet…
World Cup fever is sweeping Dubai, but what happens if you need to board a flight during one of the upcoming final games of the tournament?
Well, if you’re flying with Emirates then you needn’t worry about missing any of the action as the Dubai airline is streaming every game of the tournament live right up until the final on Sunday, July 15.
Such was the case on July 4, when passenger Laddawan Cherry Kateanan captured the reaction of fans aboard an Emirates flight as England midfielder Eric Dier scored the winning penalty for his country in their Round of 16 match against Colombia last week.
The clip, which was posted to Facebook, shows the economy class cabin erupting into cheers and chants of British band The Lightning Seeds’ unofficial football anthem ‘Three Lions (It’s Coming Home)’.
The video has since gone viral with more than 2.5 million views and 1,400 shares.
