One Direction's Louis Tomlinson gives support to England ahead of Italy football match

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has backed England ahead of their World Cup clash with Italy.

The team will play their first game of the 2014 tournament on Saturday (June 14) and the singer has taken to Twitter to show his support.

He wrote: "Ahhhhh can't wait for Saturday! Come on England !!!!"

Tomlinson is a big football fan and he is part of a group currently in talks with Doncaster Rovers about buying the League One club.

A deal is expected to be concluded soon, with negotiations over the singer's image rights the main stumbling block.

The One Direction man has previously played for the team's reserves to raise money for charity.
