To celebrate the tournament and pay tribute to the players, Showcase teamed up with food artist Nathan Wyburn to create some artwork of each nation’s footballing hero.

The well-renowned artist has put together portraits of England captain Harry Kane, Welsh star Gareth Bale and Scotland skipper Andrew Robertson, created using only popcorn.

Nathan, who rose to fame following his appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2011, said: “Showcase Cinemas commissioned me to create a series of portraits to celebrate the upcoming Euros – and the nation’s favourite cinema snack – popcorn - made the perfect material to create these portraits.

“We all love popcorn, and I’m sure these players are no different. Hopefully these pieces of artwork will show that we’re all behind them, and we wish them luck.”
