The match kicks off at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium at 21:00 local time later on Wednesday.

"England are in Moscow! We are looking forward to today's match and wish good luck to the team. To show our support for the team, St George's Cross flag is flying outside the embassy," the embassy said via their official Facebook page.

The UK Embassy also hoisted the flag before England's round of 16 match against Colombia on 3 July.
