Daily Star readers donned our cut-out foil hats in a bid to stop Uri Geller ruining England’s Euros chances.
The spoon-bending mind influencer will try to help Scotland beat England on Friday to make up for Euro 96.
Uri is still wracked with guilt about his actions during that tournament when he claimed to have moved the ball with his mind just before Scotland’s Gary McAllister missed his penalty in the tie between the two nations.
It came seconds before Paul Gascoigne’s iconic goal down the other end on England’s way to a 2-0 win.
But your Daily Star has produced a special “mystical” tin foil hat readers can wear to try to halt the Israeli-Brit illusionist’s “energy”.
England fan Harry Brown from Mom Loft Converters was pictured wearing the hat on Wednesday while working on a roof in Coulsdon, Surrey.
And students Martha Griffiths 18 and Victoria Roberts 19, even got in on the act at Royal Ascot.
Uri, 74, said: “England won and it’s now about survival for Scotland. I’ll do everything to help them win. This is going to be only on this match because of what I did in Euro 96.”
Uri will watch the match from his apartment in Israel, where he will hold a Scotland shirt with his name on during crucial moments.
But he admits the mind power of England fans will be a tough test.
He added: “I’ve gone through a lot of tests with the CIA, MI5 and Mossad.
“But England is bigger, better, has more people and more energy.”
Asked what he wants in return for his efforts, Uri said: “When Scotland win I want a special kilt from their manager Steve Clarke.”
