Scaffolders Show Their Pride With A Massive England Flag On Flats

Scaffolders Show Their Pride With A Massive England Flag On Flats

As you're almost definitely aware, football is coming home.

Well, in anticipation of its arrival once England win the World Cup in Russia and certainly aren't sent packing by a massively underestimated yet talented Columbia side, people are starting to get into the spirit.

One group of scaffolders have taken things up a notch. Instead of enjoying the more traditional fayre of England fans - a few boozy renditions of 'Three Lions' and the occasional flung deck chair - they've decorated an entire building in honour of their returning heroes.

Yes, a team of workers from East Sussex have decked out the whole of an eight-storey block of flats in a huge cross of St George to inspire the local population to believe in the England football team.

It took them about a week to complete, but the results are astonishing. The flag measures up to 120 feet by 60 feet across.

Steve Eason, who is the brains behind this particular show of patriotism, said that they just wanted to show their support and have a bit of good natured fun.

He told PA: "We did it because it's sunny, it's the World Cup, we wanted to put smiles on peoples' faces and show we are behind the boys. We've had so much interest, it's been great.

"We're hopeful for Tuesday, and beyond.

"The flag is staying up for two months, whether they stay in or not.

"If they win, there's several bits we will add. I might even add a gold World Cup to it."

I mean, let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Actually, who am I kidding? Everyone in England has already lost the plot completely and seems to firmly believe that England are about to return with the World Cup trophy in their hands.

This is after successfully beating a sub-par Tunisia, and a Panama side who just might rank amongst the worst sides ever to feature at a major finals.

Of course, even a defeat to Belgium hasn't shaken people's belief that football is coming home. England played a second-string team and obviously meant to lose so that they could get an easier path to the final - those Belgian slugs walked right into the trap.

The Three Lions' hopes have been heightened by the exit of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo too. Messi's Argentina side were beaten by France and CR7 was knocked out by Uruguay yesterday. Happy days.

England continue their inexorable march towards glory this Tuesday at 7pm BST against Colombia.
