Most of England was celebrating yesterday following the side's 6-1 win at the World Cup, except for one fan in particular.
English soccer fans will know all too well that despite being the country that invented the sport, at major tournaments they fail to really make a mark. It has been 52 years since England won its one and only World Cup, and if anything in recent years it feels as if they are getting further and further away from clinching a second. The team's performance on Sunday will have instilled a little hope in fans though.
England well and truly put Panama to the sword, defeating them 6-1 and qualifying for the round of sixteen in style. It's England's biggest ever win at a World Cup having previously never beaten anyone by more than a three-goal margin. Many fans will likely now be saying "what if..." for the first time in a while.
There was one fan in particular who wouldn't have been celebrating quite as hard as the rest of the country when the goals were flying in on Sunday. An England fan named Jess vowed to get a tattoo of John Stones if the defender netted against Panama. Seemingly a safe bet since Stones has never scored for England before. Well, it took just eight minutes for the Manchester City player to get on the scoresheet, and he scored again later on.
Understandably, since then the tweet has gone viral. Stones' fellow England and Man City defender, Kyle Walker has even offered to stump up the cash. At first, Jess seemed like she was going to come good on the bet, telling Twitter that she would try to have it done before England's game with Belguim on Thursday. However, since then not only has the original tweet been deleted, but Jess has disappeared from social media altogether.
If we're being completely honest, we don't blame Jess for disappearing. When she initially tweeted about getting a tattoo if Stones scored against Panama she likely didn't think anything of it. She may have even forgotten about it until the eighth minute of the match. It would have been amusing to see her get the Man City player tattooed onto her, but clearly, the whole thing has gained a little too much traction.
