Man Gets 'England Winners' Tattoo Ahead Of Euro 2020 Final

A fanatical England fan has been getting really getting into the spirit of Euro 2020 by getting 'it's coming home' tattooed on his leg before the team have even played the final against Italy.

Gareth Southgate's Three Lions qualified for the tournament's showpiece by beating Denmark earlier this week, but 26-year-old Lewis Holden from Oldham has already had 'Euro 2020. England Winners. It's Coming Home' inked onto his leg.

Well, even if they lose, at least he'll have a story to tell.

He's got a 50/50 chance of being right, too.

It's quite an impressive bit of ink, even if the tournament hasn't concluded just yet. It also features the European Championship trophy.

Despite jumping the gun somewhat in declaring England the victors, the dad believes that he hasn't jinxed it, but quite the opposite, he's guaranteed that 'it' - football, presumably - finally will come home.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "I haven't jinxed it, I've made it come home.

"Everybody has been saying that but it's not going to jinx it, I'm confident."

Lewis had originally made a pact with his pal that they'd both get matching England tattoos if the side brought home the cup, but - after watching England's extra-time win against the Danes - he started seeing if he could get booked in early.

He continued: "One replied to me saying he could fit me in tomorrow then I just forgot about it, I'd had a few beers by that point."

So, off he went the next day, and here he is.

Lewis already has a few tattoos, so says that he 'wasn't too bothered' about getting more ink.

More bothering, perhaps, was that his girlfriend Chloe initially said that he was an 'idiot' for getting it done, but she's now on board and can laugh about it.

He added: "On Monday everyone will be queuing up for this tattoo."

Well, when you put it like that, maybe it's just smart.

Unless Italy win on Sunday night at Wembley, that is.

Lewis has even upped the ante, stating: "I might even get a Phil Foden haircut too if we win."

That means he'd have his hair bleached entirely white-blonde.

It's even more interesting given that Lewis is a Manchester United fan, and Phil Foden plays for great rivals City.

Still, at times like these, rivalries go straight out of the window, right?

Either way, Lewis will be there with his tattoo in the pub on Sunday to see if England's men can triumph in their first final since 1966.

He's going to look a bit silly if they don't, so maybe Gareth and the lads should have a think about that?
