As the England team are preparing to put on their boots for their first game tomorrow, fans everywhere are praying for goals. Another kind of goal is also on our minds though – education for every child.

The 1Goal campaign aims to get every child out of poverty and into education by 2O15. Every name signed up to the campaign will form part of a petition that will be presented in front of world leaders at an education summit later this year.

72 million children are out of education- that's the equivalent to filling wembley 847 times! We want to get one signature for every child out of education.

So why not use half time as an opportunity to visit and sign up – it only takes a couple of minutes and could make a real difference to a young persons life. Alternatively, text 1GOAL to 20102 for free from your O2 mobile.

Football is going to be on the minds of many Brits over the next month – let's make sure education is too!

Come on England!
