An England fan is so adamant that the Three Lions are winning the Euros, that he's already got a tattoo done.

Following on from the extra time semi-final win over Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday, the whole nation is convinced that football will finally come home after all these years of hurst.

Gareth Southgate's side will make history if England beat Italy on Sunday and we cannot imagine the absolute chaos that could be in store across the country.

On Thursday, three days before the final, father of two Lewis Holden got very excited and now has, "Euro 2020. England Winners. It's Coming Home" tattooed on his right leg.

Lewis, from Shaw in Oldham, had made a bet with a mate that they would get matching tattoos if England went all the way.

But he's already jumped the gun and after contacting a few tattoo parlours when he had a few beers watching the Denmark triumph, he added some new, unique ink to his collection.

"I haven't jinxed it, I've made it come home," the 26-year-old told the Manchester Evening News.

"Everybody has been saying that but it's not going to jinx it, I'm confident. On Monday, everybody will be queuing up for this tattoo.

"I might even get a Phil Foden haircut too if we win."

Three years ago, Jamie Richardson from Castleford got a tattoo on his stomach with the words, "England 2018 World Cup Winners."

He made the decision when England were 5-0 up at half-time against Panama and was made to look a little daft as the team were beaten by Croatia in the semi-finals.

However, he said he had no regrets over the premature tattoo.

"It's better to have believed and lost than to have never believed at all," Jamie told the Daily Star Online after the semi-final heartache.

"I have no regrets. I've woken up extremely proud to be English today.

"All them boys will be coming home heroes. They've done the entire country extremely proud.

"Gareth Southgate has been carrying this weight around with him since 1996 and now he can come home knowing he gave us something to believe in."

Let's hope it's a different story when Sunday is over and done with.
