England Fan Shaves ‘It’s Coming Home’ Into Hair On His Back

A hirsute England fan has shaved a St George's Cross into his chest hair and the words 'It's coming home' into his back. And I think we can all agree, that's a fairly unique way to celebrate England's place in the final.

As you are probably very aware - England are set to take on Italy in tonight's Euro 2020 final and it's fair to say fans are getting pretty excited about the prospect of a win.

One such fan is scaffolder Alfie Callagher-Roberts who scoured the shops for an England shirt on Friday but wasn't able to get his hands on due to their overwhelming popularity at the moment.


But the 23-year-old wasn't going to let that stop him from showing his support for the team, so he whipped out the clippers and set to work shaving his chest hair into the shape of the St George's Cross.

He then enlisted the help of a pal to write 'it's coming home' in the hair on his back.

Alfie, from East London, said: "I've always been told I've got more hair on my chest and back than an ape - so put it to good use.

"I went round all the shops after work but couldn't get one so I bought a pair of clippers instead.


"I did the front and shaved the flag into my hair then got a razor to smooth it out.

"I got my mate to do my back - he thought it was hilarious."

Alife, who reckons it will be a 3-1 victory for England, says he's now planning to watch the game topless to show off his support.

He added: "I'll have a flag around my neck and my chest out.

"I love it - I think it's hilarious.

"I'm hoping it will grown back in time for the start of the season so I can get the Irons logo shaved in for the first West Ham game."

Of course, some fans have gone one-step further with various people showing off new tattoos to mark England's place in the final.


Among those willing to hop into the tattooists chair was Lewis Holden from Oldham has already had 'Euro 2020. England Winners. It's Coming Home' inked onto his leg.

Well, he's certainly got a lot of faith in the team.

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."
