The mystic urges supporters of the Three Lions to tap into his abilities for this evenings match against Ukraine.

England play tonight in their European Championship quarter-final against Ukraine, and self-professed shepherd of England's fortunes Uri Geller spoke to Matt Frei in the run-up to the game of the year.

"Who will you try and influence, whose foot will you try and move?" Matt asked the illusionist.

"That's quite a silly question" Mr Geller insisted, refusing to share his methods with LBC listeners.

He did reveal that he will be "with England" during the game however, adding that he'll be sending his powers to the team to drive them into the semi final.

Mr Geller has claimed credit for England's fortunes so far, insisting that his powers made German forward Thomas Müller miss a certain goal against the Three Lions on Tuesday.

Matt was skeptical: "That was you? It wasn't somehow that the ground was wet?"

"There is no doubt in my mind," the mystic insisted, adding that the "massive power of the fans" helped him fulfil the task.

"I was a catalyst, I was an enabler," he concluded, suggesting he will do the same against Ukraine.
