A WOMAN has vowed to keep a 'It's a coming' tattoo despite England's agonising defeat in the Euro 2020 final.

Workington's Courtney Harrison made a pact with friends to get the ink if England went all the way.

But the 22-year-old got the tattoo on her ankle as a spur of the moment decision ahead of the semi-final clash with Denmark.

Initially Courtney said if England were to lose out on the cup she would have an arrow with ‘not’ written into the design - however she has now changed her mind.

“I don’t regret getting the tattoo as it was to make everyone around me laugh and it did exactly that," she said.

“It’s gone everywhere now and hopefully made other people laugh as well.

“I’m going to keep the tattoo. We’ve all had a rubbish year and the England team did us really proud and played well to get where they did. It’s fetched the country some positivity after a horrible year due to Covid.

“The tattoo will be staying as a reminder to how close we were and how well this England squad is going to do in future games.”

Although Courtney is not a big football fan, she watches every England match and was devastated to see the Three Lions miss out on their first chance of a major trophy in 55 years with a nail-bitingly close penalty shoot out loss to Italy.

Despite her disappointment, she echoed the sentiments of the rest of the county.

She said: "I was nervous last night, more so for the England team themselves. They all worked so hard and you could see how devastated everyone was but the tattoo I’ve got is still showing we support them no matter what the outcome.”
