Three free tickets for England’s game against Trinidad and Tobago are going spare – somewhere in Germany.
A Memphis family on a European holiday told me today they were offered the gold-dust tickets gratis by a self-confessed Chelsea hooligan.
Despite a banning order, he claimed to have sneaked his way into Germany using a friend’s passport.
His three fellow cons had managed to make it there using their own – before being collared in Munich and deported.
Now he has been punting the spares as he drinks his way from Frankfurt to Nuremburg.
Eventually, the visitors from Memphis were persuaded by their “suspicious minds” to politely decline, fearing guilt by association.
But someone less scrupulous, somewhere in Germany, might just get lucky – if the Chelsea chav’s luck doesn’t run out first.
