England fan gets a tattoo of Gareth Southgate's full 23-man World Cup squad

England tattoo

England face Sweden in Samara on Saturday after successfully overcoming Colombia in the last 16 on penalties.

For virtually all Three Lions fans it was a joyous occasion, but you may question whether it was a good day for supporter Dan Welch, who knew he had a promise to fulfil.

In May, he tweeted: "Putting my neck on the line, but if @England get to the quarter-finals with that squad, I will get the 23-man squad names tattooed on me."

Welch has followed through with his pledge and got those names permanently stamped on himself. He's even gone a step further by including Southgate's name at the top too.

Another thing for the CV, Gareth.
