England squad member and Leicester City player Harry, and Laurence, who plays for Chesterfield, tackled tough questions at St Mary’s Catholic High School where their sister Daisy, 18, is a pupil.

They were quizzed about who had inspired them in football. Harry 24, credited John Terry and Rio Ferdinand and Laurence said brother Harry.

When asked what careers they would have gone into if they hadn’t been footballers, Harry said he had enjoyed maths at school so would have gone into finance or business and Laurence, 20, said he would have been a PE teacher.
