England fan receives violent threats over Euros flag display

The father has covered his home with more than 20 flags.

An England football fan who plastered his home in St George’s cross flags has kept them displayed despite threats and the teams disappointing draw against rivals Scotland at the weekend.

The 42-year-old father covered his home in 23 red and white flags celebrating the start of the 2020 Euros and England’s campaign to bring the title home.

But despite England's dour 0-0 draw with neighbours Scotland on Friday night, he is determined to keep them up and not lose the faith in Gareth Southgate's men.

And after suffering online abuse and threats that his windows would be smashed in for decorating his home with the patriotic flag the father, who didn’t want to be named, has continued to display the flags.

The property in Phoenix Street, West Bromwich, has over 20 flags covering every inch of the house leaving just the windows and front door bare.

The property owner has covered his home in more than 20 flags of the St George's Cross.

He has said he will keep the flags up despite receiving threats for his display.

All 23 of the flags still take pride of place covering the red-bricked property and a larger flag continues to fly high on the corner of the house despite the threats this morning.

England's next game is against the Czech Republic on Tuesday evening, with the Three Lions needing just a point to guarantee their qualification for the next round. A win would see England top the group although this is likely to see them face a much more difficult opponent in the next round.
