ENGLAND’S lucky charm Chesney Hawkes is in a race against time to get to the World Cup round of 16 match today — but he has The Sun on his side.
Even England ace Declan Rice said he hoped England could “get him singing at every half-time”.
He also paid a visit on Friday to The Sun’s HQ to sing a duet of One and Only with boxer Tyson Fury.
The first stage of Operation Sun and Only to get Chesney to Qatar swept into action last night — as he jumped in our cab to Heathrow following a gig at Butlin’s in Skegness, Lincs.
West Ham fan Chesney said: “The whole thing has just been a whirlwind — hearing one of my heroes Declan name-checking me in the England press conference was just amazing.
“I never claimed to bring England good luck but anything I can do as a fan, to get the crowd going and help the side, I’ll do it.”
He has 19 hours to get from his gig to the match as England take on Senegal.
