Sharing his snap with Robert, David penned the caption: ‘Honour to have the best Winston in the house last night.’

He then shared a group image with his friends during the game, writing: ‘Great win for the lads last night, catching up with mates.’

David enjoyed the private viewing party to ensure he didn’t miss out on England’s latest match, after flying home from Qatar to attend his wife Victoria’s work Christmas party.

The couple were back to their matching best later that night when they were pictured leaving her Dover Street store in Mayfair, looking very attractive in black. 

David and Victoria held hands as they left the upmarket store at around 10pm after letting their hair down together but failed to raise a smile.

The sportsman has landed himself in hot water in recent months for refusing to step down from fulfilling his £10million Qatar World Cup deal amid anger over human rights and LGBTQ+ issues.

The couple looked very much in love as they prepared to head home.

A source told MailOnline: ‘The music was extremely loud, and the DJ even played a Spice Girls records.’

No doubt David was thrilled by England’s 3-0 victory against Wales that evening.

David has been criticised for his £10million Qatar World Cup deal.

The decision by FIFA to hold the World Cup in Qatar has been surrounded by controversy – particularly in relation to migrant workers and the LGBTQ+ community.

David has not spoken about the country’s oppressive laws despite warnings over human rights abuses and an abysmal record on LGBTQ+ issues.
