England Fan Shaves St George's Cross Into His Hair Because It's Coming Home

England Fan Shaves St George's Cross Into His Hair Because It's Coming Home

At the minute, many England fans are feeling pretty confident that football is, in fact, coming home.


This year's World Cup has been unlike any other and we're seeing favourites drop like flies leaving the way clear for Gareth Southgate's England side to claim the title. Simple really.

One fan is feeling so confident he'swilling to show his support in a very visible way, I'm not talking popping on an England top; nope. I'm talking shaving a St George's Cross into his hair.

Twenty-one-year-old Liam Sweeney, from Derby, is currently on a LADs' holiday in Ibiza with five of his friends. He decided to show his support for the Three Lions by shaving two lines into his hair in the form of St George's Cross.

Speaking to LADbible, Liam said: "I was literally being a dickhead with my mates and decided to shave my hair off for a laugh.

"I did the first line down the middle, then my mate suggested I make it into the flag.

"I thought it was hilarious to be honest, thought I looked a prick though. My friends all love it because of how funny and daft the video is."

Sadly, Liam has since taken all the hair off, so he's no longer rocking the flag-look, but his faith in the England time is unwavering. When asked what he reckons the odds of an England win are he says: "Daft question, it's coming home." That's good enough for me.

Jamie is so sure that it's coming home, he's had an etching of the World Cup with the wording 'England 2018 World Cup Winners' tattooed on his stomach.


Speaking to LADbible after the Panama game, Jamie said: "We were 5 - 0 at half-time, and I just knew. It just felt like not since Euro 96 when we were 1 nil up against the Germans, or in 1998 when Michael Owen scored against Argentina and before Beckham got sent off, we - in a major tournament - really had a chance of winning.

"I know it was only Panama, but you look at the last five nations that have won - France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Brazil, all of these major teams. It's our turn."

Fair enough.
