In Partnership With Auto Trader
It’s been an exciting World Cup so far for England, with many tentative whispers about football coming home.
And thanks to Auto Trader, the competition has an additional thrill. The UK’s largest automotive marketplace is giving away a spanking new car for every goal scored by the England team.
And at the rate Harry Kane and the lads have been going, there have already been quite a few happy winners.
The England team have scored eight superb goals so far, and Auto Trader have been good to their word, dishing out £156,135 worth of vehicles. This has included two Jeep Renegade’s, three Abarth 595’s, two Alfa Mito’s and two Fiat 500x’s.
To be in with a chance of scoring a lovely new ride, all motorists had to do was post #AutoTraderGoals on social media or – if preferred – give their email address at Autotrader.co.uk/goals each time the Three Lions hit the back of the net.
Auto Trader’s Lei Sorvisto stated:
It’s fair to say that when we started this competition, we didn’t anticipate England would score so many goals – so we’ve given our finance director a few headaches – but we’re thrilled for all of the competition winners and we’re behind the England team to bring it home!
The #AutoTraderGoals hashtag is now trending on Twitter, and has been posted more than 140,000 times.
And there have been some well-deserved winners, including pregnant, 24-year-old paediatric nurse Imogen Ryan.
Imogen is now is the proud owner of an Alfa Mito, all thanks to Harry Kane’s successful penalty during regular time of England’s victory over Colombia.
According to the happy mum-to-be:
I was crying with joy when I found out I had won.
I’m 17 weeks pregnant and we desperately need a new car – so to win one in this way after such a dramatic end to the game was beyond a dream – I love Harry Kane but I love Auto Trader more!
Saturday’s game against Sweden could well bring us another taste of glory. Could you be the next lucky winner?
The quarter final kicks off at 15:00 BST, Saturday July 7.
