Football-mad fan shaves message of support into chest hair as shirts sold out for Euros 2020 final

England fan shaves 'It's Coming Home' into his back as football history beckons for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions

A football fan who couldn't get his hands on an England shirt ahead of the game shaved the flag into his chest hair - and the words 'It's Coming Home' into his back.

Scaffolder Alfie Callagher-Roberts, 23, scoured the shops after work on 9 July to pick up a football shirt but was left disappointed to find they were sold out.

So, the West Ham fan got the clippers out and went home to shave the St George's Cross into his chest hair.

To complete the look, he got a pal to shave in the phrase 'It's Coming Home' into his hairy 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 confidently predicts a 3-1 victory for England this evening, is planning to watch the game topless to show off his unique 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."

Gareth Southgate s Three Lions will face Italy in the final of Euro 2020 at 8pm on July 11 – after a tense extra time win over Denmark in the competition's second semi-final.
