Video: England Fan Jumps into the Canal in Amsterdam Ahead of Netherlands Friendly

Gareth Southgate‘s England squad have travelled to Amsterdam ahead of this weekend’s friendly with the Netherlands… and one Three Lions fan has already made a splash in the country’s capital.

Southgate’s side play the Netherlands tomorrow evening, before returning to the UK to host Italy in another friendly at Wembley on Tuesday night.

And while the double-header will afford the former Middlesbrough boss the opportunity to assess his squad ahead of this summer’s World Cup in Russia… the trip has also allowed the country’s football fans an away day in Amsterdam.

A definite recipe for disaster.

Especially for this fan, who has wasted no time whatsoever in jumping into one of the city’s famous canals:


Bet he regrets that in the morning!

Southgate confirmed this afternoon that Jack Wilshere hasn’t made the trip to Holland because of a knee injury which has been described as “nothing serious”.

Here’s hoping this fan is as lucky as the Gunners midfielder in avoiding serious injury after this jump!
