John's Party Guests Hooked On Soccer

Guests at SIR ELTON JOHN's extravagant $2.7 million (GBP1.5 million) party snubbed the glitz and glamour on offer in favour of a crucial ENGLAND soccer match.

Revellers KATE MOSS, ELIZABETH HURLEY and NAOMI CAMPBELL were so enthralled by their national team's EURO 2004 Quarter-Final clash with Portugal on Thursday (24JUN04), they spent the night in front of a TV.

A source says, "Four or five blokes brought portable TVs and hid them under the table to take sneaky peeks.

"At first Elton didn't notice as it was all done quietly. He was concentrating on the charity auction - ROD STEWART bid $810,000 (GBP450,000) for a new ASTON MARTIN DB9.

"And OZZY OSBOURNE missed out on lunch with Sir Elton and partner DAVID FURNISH in Las Vegas - to a businessman who paid $180,000 (GBP100,000).

"But when it came to extra time the place was buzzing and everyone was jostling to see the game - just as the food arrived.

"The place was jumping. When it was five all in penalties, everyone was shouting, 'Come on England.' The noise was deafening."

England were ultimately knocked out of the high-profile competition after losing a penalty shoot-out.

The source adds, "Afterwards everyone was gutted. The band started to play and the party went on till the early hours."
