An England fan on holiday in Turkey is coming back to Norwich with the ultimate souvenir after getting an ‘it’s coming home’ tattoo.

Rhiannon Twigg, 27, celebrated England’s historic quarter-final victory over Sweden on Saturday by getting the tattoo at 4am after a night out in Marmaris.

“I watched the match at an English bar and it was brilliant,” she said, “At the end of the match I was on someone’s shoulders.

“It was a drunken decision at 4am to get the tattoo. I just wanted something to remember the football by.”

She was the only one of her friends to get a tattoo and said they were “not that stupid”.

The Three Lions take on Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday and Rhiannon believes they will make the final.

But if Harry Kane does not end up lifting the World Cup trophy, she has a back up plan for the tattoo.

“If we don’t win I’m going to get ‘maybe next time’ tattooed underneath it.”
