Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland say C’mon England

The internal rivalries of the United Kingdom look to be set aside this summer with significant majorities of people in the other home nations happy to support England in the World Cup.

The Welsh were the keenest at 83% support , 76% in Northern Ireland but the Scottish were the slightly reluctant at 67%. The survey also showed strong support for the London Olympics across the UK with Northern Ireland the happiest at 82% support. Support for maintaining a combined team under the Union flag at the Olympics remains strong too (with the notable exception of Scotland).
