Howard Donald will shave his balls live on Instagram if England makes it through to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia this year. The Take That singer has admitted he was shocked when he heard that the national football team had managed to wiggle their way through to the quarter-finals after winning a penalty shootout – only the second time they’ve won a shootout at a major tournament since the Euro 1996 – against Colombia in Moscow last night (07.03.18). England will now go up against Sweden this weekend and the 50-year-old singer has told his fans that he will expose his bits online if they manage to win the game.
Taking to his Twitter account this morning (07.04.18), he said: “Woke up at 6.30 today as I’m working on an exciting series for @Channel4 “Did we really win on penalties last night??????!! I really hope it does come home if it does I will shave my balls live on @instagram Even if we get to the semis (sic).”
England fans were left sat on the edge of their seats during last night’s nail-biting game after Harry Kane scored the first goal just minutes into the second half after Carlos Sanchez fouled the England captain during a free-kick. England looked set to be sailing through the quarterfinals of the World Cup as the game went to extra time but the players were left devastated when Colombia’s Yerry Mina managed to score the equalizer two minutes from the whistle being blown. However, Kane’s team did the nation proudly when they won the penalty shootout with 4-3 thanks to the captain, Marcus Rashford, Kieran Trippier and Eric Dier.
