Saturday’s rugby match, which is being played in Yokohama, Japan, is set to be an early one with kickoff at 9am GMT.
Ahead of the game dozens of people have shown their support for captain Owen Farrell and the team, including Prince Harry and the Queen.
Bundle of joy: Gordon recently revealed he ‘dropped to the floor and blacked out’ as he and wife Tana welcomed Oscar to the world seven months ago
The Duke of Sussex, who has been Patron of the Rugby Football Union since 2017, will even fly to Japan to support the England team.
Gordon’s snap comes after he admitted Oscar’s birth was ‘scary’ and he ‘fainted’ during an interview with Jonathan Ross.
Gordon said he ‘dropped to the floor and blacked out’ as he and Tana welcomed Oscar to the world – which also marked the first time he had been present at one of his five children’s births.
Family: Gordon, pictured with Tana and Oscar, said in an interview with Jonathan Ross that he’s only been at the birth of his youngest as his wife didn’t want him to see her ‘in this state’
He said: ‘Tana didn’t want to see me there for previous births, she said “I don’t want you to see me in this state so get out.”‘
‘This time around, I was there and I absolutely cr*pped my pants. I fainted. I literally dropped on the floor.
‘I was sat there and Oscar popped out through the sunroof and then they sort of throw you on him and he’s screaming and I fell back, the nurse grabbed me.’
The Michelin starred chef said he had opted for a relaxing soundtrack to create a chilled atmosphere in the delivery room – which had the adverse effect.

He said: ‘Ed Sheeran was playing, I put Ed on to calm everybody. I put Ed on then I blacked out, I fainted like an idiot.
‘Have you ever been in the [operating] theatre where there is so much commotion, so much going on? And then bang. I’ve never fainted in my life, by the way, that was the first time.’
Oscar joins the couple’s children Megan, 21, twins Holly and Jack, 19, and Matilda, 17.
Gordon gushed about his son, saying: ‘He is six months, it’s extraordinary, also for the rest of the kids it’s just a welcome bundle of joy.’
