The British fan tattooed the trophy with the legend “England winner of Euro 2020” and hours later his team ended up losing on penalties to Italy at Wembley.
Italy’s victory in the final of the euro left thousands of England fans disappointed who were confident of being able to celebrate their first European title at Wembley. However, there are one british fan in particular that he must be more upset than the rest. And is that decided to get tattooed “Euro 2020 England Winners” (which translates to “England winner of Euro 2020”) in the hours before the game.
Much to his chagrin, even though those led by Gareth Southgate were ahead both in the game and on penalties, ended up falling after Rashford, Sancho and Saka consecutively failed their respective executions.
What’s more, another of the phrases included in the controversial tattoo was “It’s coming home” (which translates to “He’s coming home”), a motto adopted by the Three Lions fans from the song “Football’s Coming Home.”
