"Every little effort to dispose of their waste correctly, by using the available on-street bins or taking litter home, makes a big difference.”

Lucky ticket holders can use recycling and waste bins provided in the stadium and on street bins if they gather before or after the event.

Mr Hauret added: "Veolia thanks fans who have been following this guidance already and hopes everyone enjoys the tournament’s semi-final.

"Just remember whether or not England’s national team bring it home, you should bring your litter home!"

Cllr Krupa Sheth, environment chief at Brent Council said maintenance teams have been "working tirelessly after each game".

"They’ve been doing great work clearing up after thousands of football fans and attendees," she added.

“It’s been a pleasure having the tournament in our borough, but the littering and mess left behind by spectators is not acceptable. I urge everyone to do their bit and bin their rubbish on match days.

“As we go into the semi-finals at Wembley Stadium, I hope people play their part and try to keep the area clean. I’ll be cheering on England at home and wishing them the best of luck for their game tonight!”
