Manchester United fan gets haircut inside Wembley during FA Cup semi-final
| Last updated
Footie fans were on the edge of their seats yesterday (23 April) as a dramatic FA cup semi-final saw Manchester United get through to the final by the skin of their teeth on penalties against Brighton.
It was a tense and emotional 120 minutes all round. Not the best time to get a haircut, you would have thought.
But that’s exactly what one fan did - right in the middle of Wembley stadium.
Many social media users rightly wondered what would happen if Man U scored and the crowd went wild - would this unfortunate chap end up losing an ear or something?
One wrote: “Peak if we score, his hairline is finished.”
Another commented: “Last minute winner when getting the hairline sorted gonna be mental.”
So it’s probably good news neither side managed to get one in the back of the net until penalties, all things considered.
With Man U through to the FA Cup final, this mean they're set to play against longtime rivals Manchester City on Saturday, 3 June.
In other football news, in a devastating blow to the Lionesses, it was confirmed last week that England captain Leah Williamson will be unable to play in the Women’s World Cup due to an injury.
Williamson suffered a devastating injury in a match against Manchester United on Wednesday (19 April) just 12 minutes into the game.
Arsenal FC said on Twitter: "We can confirm that Leah Williamson suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament on Wednesday night. We're all right behind you, @leahcwilliamson.”
They added in a full statement: "We can confirm that Leah Williamson suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in our Barclays Women’s Super League match against Manchester United on Wednesday night.
"Leah was substituted in the first half of the game at Leigh Sports Village and underwent further assessment on Thursday to determine the extent of the injury.
"Leah will now begin a period of rehabilitation and is set for an extended spell on the sidelines. She will undergo surgery in due course.
"Everyone at Arsenal will be supporting Leah closely throughout the journey ahead and we would ask that her privacy is respected at this time."
Williamson's injury comes comes just a few months before the Women's World Cup is set to kick off, with England's opening World Cup match scheduled for 22 July.
She later confirmed on her Instagram she would be missing the World Cup, writing: "Unfortunately the World Cup and Champions' League dream is over for me."
