Woman Doesn't Like Football But Gets 'It's Coming Home 2021' Tattoo

Woman Doesn't Like Football But Gets 'It's Coming Home 2021' Tattoo

Last night was one of the biggest in the country's sporting history, with England making the final of Euro 2020 - its first ever.

Millions of people cheered their hearts out as Harry Kane scored the second goal to put the game beyond Denmark and seal the Three Lions' ticket for the game against Italy this weekend.

But before a ball was even kicked, Courtney Harrison, from Workington, Cumbria, was incredibly confident of victory, and even got a tattoo to show it.

The 22-year-ild doesn't like football but has got into it during the Euros.

Referencing the iconic 'Three Lions' tune, the 22-year-old had 'It's coming home 2021' inked onto her ankle a day before Gareth Southgate's side took to the pitch at Wembley.

And what's even weirder, Courtney isn't even a fan.

"I don't even like football, I'd never watch the Premier League or anything, but when it's the Euros or the World Cup everyone gets into it don't they?," she explained.

"I thought if I get this tattoo I might give the lads a bit of luck - and it seems to have worked so far.

"Watching the game last night was so tense, knowing that I have 'it's coming home' branded onto my skin made me want them to win so much more.

"I couldn't take my eyes off it, you would have thought I was an actual fan."

Courtney got the tattoo before the semi-final with Denmark.

Courtney, who paid £40 for the artwork, said she had already talked about getting an England tattoo with friends if the side did manage to win the tournament.

And a bit overexcited after the team's 4-0 drubbing of Ukraine last weekend, the carer decided to go for it while on her way home from work.

Courtney said: "I rang around a load of tattoo shops asking who could see me there and then.

"I had to lie to the artist and tell him it was for a bet because he was saying

"I don't even know why I did it, it's not like I can say I was drunk or anything as an excuse, I think I'm just a bit stupid. I'll do anything for a laugh really.

"My friends think I'm mad as well, although a few of them are thinking of doing the same thing before the final."

She's got a plan to 'fix' the tattoo if England lose the final.

But if you're sat there thinking, 'Well, this is a bit foolhardy', think again.

Courtney has a 'get out of jail free' card she's waiting to play in the tragic event that England lose the final.

"If we lose I'm going to get the word 'not' added between 'it's' and 'home' with a little arrow, so it will say 'it's not coming home'," she said.

"I'm going to look a bit silly if we don't do it now but at least I'll have a funny story to tell."

Luckily for her, though, it definitely is coming home.
