With the European Championship now drawing towards its final stage, the excitement has reached fever pitch, and nowhere more than England. With the roots of the game steeped deep in English history, they haven’t had much luck in the nation’s most popular sport over the last sixty years.
Having won Wednesday night’s semi-final against Denmark with an extra-time penalty rebound, pitted in the back of the net by penalty taker, Harry Kane. Like the other national treasure, James Bond, you may say they, ‘live to dye another day’.
This of course, is a reference to the hairlarious style sported by Manchester City’s Phil Foden, aka Stockport Gazza. Making the headlines for his head-lines, the PFA’s Young Player of the Year shocked the Island nation when he emerged sporting a bleached blonde French Crop. Foden’s forehead quickly became the centre of attention.
It’s Combing Home
Now the look has settled down and everyone’s gotten over themselves, a new rumour has been put into circulation. In a recent television interview talking about the ‘cut, the Stockport Gazza revealed that the whole team intend to replicate the look if they win the tournament.
Reminiscent of Romania’s 1998 peroxide blonde band of wing backs and strikers. If they go on to beat Italy in the final, England’s lap of London on the open top bus could resemble a badly conceived Eminem look-a-like competition.
A Cut Above the Rest
Aside from looking just like a 1996 Paul Gascoigne, Foden’s received some more favourable comparisons of late. Jamie O’Hara, another former Tottenham man claimed in an interview with TalkSport that Pep Guardiola’s midfielder is ‘better than Gascoigne’.
