Pizza Hut Delivery Offers Gareth Southgate Free Pizza For Life

No matter what happens to England between now and the World Cup their manger knows he never has to worry about buying a pizza again after Pizza Hut Delivery offered him free 'za' for life.

For the third time this World Cup I am going to be sat in the office eating pizza whilst England play in a game and as usual I'll be over eating to try and compensate for the ridiculous nerves I'll be feeling.

Pizza and football go hand in hand to the extent that it can help us celebrate and also help with out commiserations as it did in 1996.

Back then England hosted the Euros, got to the semi-final, the last time the Three Lions got so far in a tournament, and Gareth Southgate's penalty miss saw England get knocked out but also earned the central defender a hilarious Pizza Hut advert.

One thing is for sure that after this World Cup the England manager won't need to hide his face under a brown paper bag, even if they lose to Croatia.

The whole country has got into Southgate fever with Waistcoat Wednesday all the rage on social media ahead of the semi-final and everyone loving how his demeanor and passion has come across.

And now Pizza Hut Delivery have decided to honour the manager by granting him a lifetime of free deliveries of his favourite pizza.

Beverley D'Cruz, Sales and Marketing Director at Pizza Hut Delivery UK said, "Along with the nation, we are incredibly proud of the England football team and how they have delivered for us so far.

"To celebrate, Pizza Hut Delivery is excited to gift our old acquaintance Gareth Southgate free pizza for life - something we hope he can share and enjoy with his team upon returning to the UK!"

Just don't eat too much Gaz, you'll never get back in the waistcoat.
