Fans celebrate in Bristol as England scored its second goal against Sweden on Saturday

Lewis also confirmed that the big screen at Wimbledon is reserved for tennis, the BBC reports.

Some 44 per cent of United Kingdom said they won't be watching the Men's Final at all on the Sunday due to Andy Murray's absence from this year's competition.

If England defeats Croatia in Wednesday's semifinal, it will feature in a WC final for the first time since lifting the trophy in 1966.

"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on", said the eight-time champion, after seeing off France's Adrian Mannarino in straight sets.

But Wimbledon chief executive Richard Lewis has refused to change the championship's stance and said attending spectators were expecting to see tennis.

The Centre Court showpiece is now slated for 2pm GMT on Sunday, meaning it would be highly likely to clash with the World Cup final, which will also feature one of France or Belgium, who contest the other last-four tie, kicking off at 4pm.




"The (football) players are going to look up in the crowd and not understand what's going on at Wimbledon".

He continued: "We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest".

Despite the possible clash, with the World Cup final due to kick off at 4pm, Mr Lewis said the stands would be "packed" and spectators could use "modern technology" to follow the football at the same time.

However, he did offer a way that fans would be able to watch the game if they wanted to; albeit not quite with the same communal atmosphere as a big screen showing. We didn't receive one single complaint from anyone who was here who felt their enjoyment of the tennis was interrupted and I'm sure it'll be the same next Sunday. "They'll hear every point, wow, love-15, 15-30", he said. Wimbledon rules state that mobile phones, tablets and other electronic devices "must be switched off in and around the courts in play".

There were several people keeping up with action on their phones, with one woman kitted out in England attire watching on a bench while waiting for Martina Navratilova to play her women's invitational doubles match on Court Three.

"I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored.it was wonderful".
