Italian Steward Singing 'Football's Coming Home' Is Peak Euro 2020

This is the moment a Italian steward was filmed celebrating England's quarter-final victory against Ukraine last night - which he did by singing everyone's favourite football anthem:

The man joined in the fun by singing a rendition of 'Three Lions' through a loudhailer - which is presumably supposed to be used to direct fans.

This came after England won 4-0 against Ukraine in Rome, taking them to the semi-final of the competition.

The team will now face Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday.

Of course, the steward's home country may still be on a high following a 2-1 victory against Belgium on Friday (2 July). Italy are also now through to the semi-finals and will face Spain on Tuesday (6 July).

Whether he's still in good spirits or not, he certainly seemed happy for the England fans as he sang the anthem through the loudhailer, while fans danced with him.

England fan Jeff Pedley, who filmed the video, explained: "After the amazing 90 minutes in the stadium, the fans kept partying around the stadium.

"We had been singing our hearts out for hours and there was a little lull in the chanting. That's when one of the Italian stewards started singing 'it's coming home' through his loudhailer.

"He actually started the chant and within seconds he had created his own little party, as the video shows.

"It was a nice touch. Earlier in the day I'd seen Italian fans wearing Scottish kits to wind up the English.

"However, inside the stadium the Italian authorities were spot-on, friendly and fair - really professional.

"It was a great end to a perfect night of football."

With many England fans unable to travel to Rome for the game due to Covid restrictions, fans living in Italy and Europe dominated the Three Lions faithful in the Italian capital.

Joel Phillips, 29, was one of them, originally from Doncaster but now living in Hamburg, Germany. He said: "I had a bit of an emotional moment as I was walking past the Colosseum and could hear a rumbling.

"As I got closer I realised it was 'it's coming home' echoing from a load of England fans inside [the] Colosseum. From that point on [there] were just more and more English multiplying from all over.

"I had chats with England fans who'd travelled from Dubai, Greece, Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, Russia, all corners of the earth to be there for the game.

"Choruses of 'don't take me home' rang out for hours after the final whistle and, to be fair to the Ukrainians, they partied with us long into the night."
