Spoon bender Uri Geller credits Daily Star for England progress to Euros final

Barmy spoon bender Uri Geller has credited the Daily Star with giving England a helping hand to the Euro 2020 final.

The Three Lions have qualified for a first major tournament final in 55 years after beating Denmark at a pulsating match in Wembley.

Self-proclaimed psychic Uri says he has used his powers to help England on their quest for glory.

He insists he helped England beat Scotland in Euro 96 by moving the ball on the penalty spot in the iconic match.

When asked why he has not helped the national team avoid failure after failure in the intervening 25 years, he said it is because no-one has asked him to get involved – until the Daily Star contacted him.

Uri said: "The Star made this happen. I have not helped in the past 25 years because I had not been asked.

"What I can do is very powerful and I would not try to influence events unless I was asked.

"If I am called about a good mission I believe in, then I will lend my support. I don't have agents or managers but the Star took the initiative."

The Israeli-British illusionist's involvement in Euro 2020 began when he claimed to help Scotland draw with England to "make amends" for his supposed actions in 1966.

But since then Uri, 74, insists he has been doing his best to give England a helping hand, and he will be doing the same in the final against Italy on Sunday.

Before the game against Denmark, he tweeted: "All my positive paranormal energies will be unleashed a few hours from now. Win England Win. I need all the fans to lock into my powers!!!"

He even claims he made German player Thomas Müller miss a simple chance at a crucial stage of England's last 16 win against their arch rivals.

Uri said: "I influenced Müller's miss. It doesn't matter how far I am from the events, my powers are that strong.

"The power of the mind plus the power of the fans in the stadiums are immense.

"Watch Müller's shot in slow motion. You can see the ball bending away from the goal."

Responding to skeptics who doubt his powers, Uri fired back that his powers have been "confirmed" by the CIA when they tested him in 1973.

He added: "I don't care about cynics and skeptics. People can see in the stadiums how I can influence events."
