An Edgware football fan enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when he took a penalty at Wembley Stadium.

Ben Kinchuk, of Whitchurch Lane, stepped onto the hallowed turf of the 90,000-seater stadium during during half time as England took on Brazil in an international friendly.

The 17-year-old won a competition run by the Football Association and England team sponsor Vauxhall to take his spot kick in front of a capacity crowd.

Ben later said the “unbelievable” experience on February 6 was “like a dream”.
