Del Boy Sends Message To England Squad Ahead Of Euro 2020 Final

Only Fools and Horses star Sir David Jason has got back into character as Del Boy to deliver a message to Gareth Southgate and the rest of the England squad ahead of the Euro 2020 final on Sunday. Here it is:


Jason brushed off his flat cap, popped his leather jacket back on and reprised his role as what is considered to be one of the most iconic characters of all time.

The 81-year-old featured on the clip in front of a Philips TV and multiple shoe boxes which he'll have no doubt flogged by now.

Speaking to the camera, he says: "How are you, Gareth, alright? Still living up there in North London? I had a mate, you know, he used to live down the road from you - you know, Finchley?

"Anyway, listen, I digest. Why I wanted to get in touch with you was to get you, tell you and the boys under your command, I'm going to wish them the very best of luck, right?"

Jason went on to add: "Oh, while I'm talking about luck, could you do me a favour? Could you have a word with that captain of yours, what's his name? Barry, Barry, Barry Pain, is it?

"Yeah, could you tell him to stop jumping up and down in the box when someone is trying to score a goal. Last time his head got in the way but fortunately it went in the net. He was lucky, right, OK.

"Oh, just before you go, I wondered if you could do me a favour, will ya?

"I got a container load of these [balls]. Now I wondered whether you'd do me a favour and get the boys to sign them all.

"Only when you've won, right."

He went on to remind Only Fools and Horses fans far and wide of one of his famous catchphrases: "So, here you go. Wishing you well.

"Remember this, tell them all - he who dares wins.

"Love from Del Boy."
