England fans play hilarious prank on sleeping supporter

England fans have already been criticised multiple times at Euro 2024 for their involvement in violent incidents, but, it is just as important for us to highlight any positive impacts they have too.

One such example is demonstrated in the below video, which shows a group of Three Lions supporters playing a hilarious prank on a sleeping fan who appears to have had a little too much to drink.

‘He's got a pint glass on his head…' – England fans prank supporter

Spirits were high in the city of Frankfurt ahead of the Three Lions' clash with Denmark, and this group of England fans took the opportunity to play a prank on a fellow Brit. The Brit in question appeared to have had a little too much to drink and was asleep on a doorstep.

After placing a pint glass on the fan's head, the group of supporters then slowly added to the glass with beer from their own. In the background, chants of “He's got a pint glass on his head” could be heard.

Remarkably, despite all the noise, the sleeping supporter didn't wake up once during the entire video – even when the glass inevitably fell off his head.

England fan responds to prank

Thankfully, the fan saw the funny side of the joke and responded with a retort of his the morning after.

A photo emerged on X, formerly Twitter, in which he posed with another glass on his head, albeit looking far more sober this time around.

It was a reminder of what the England fanbase can bring to a major tournament when violence is put to one side and having a good time is prioritised. If the rest of Europe were exposed to this side of Three Lions supporters more often, then their largely negative opinion of us may slowly start to improve.
