One thing is absolutely certain to happen when England take on Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley – Three Lions fans will go absolutely mental.

There have been some incredible scenes during this tournament from the supporters, who have flooded the streets to celebrate knockout victories against Germany, Ukraine, and Denmark.

From the hero Gareth Southgate fan taking selfies with fans, sexy fans revealing which England player they fancy, or just those who have gone wild at the final whistle, we can all agree the Three Lions supporters are a pretty mad bunch.

But England followers have some stiff competition when it comes to laying claim to being the world's craziest fans, just take a look at this lot.


Portuguese idol Luis Figo caused uproar in 2000 when he transferred from Barcelona to their bitter arch-rivals Real Madrid, and fans never forgave him for the betrayal.

Moving for a then world-record fee of £54 million, the move is known for being one of the most embittered transfers of all time.

On the winger's return to the Catalan city, banners reading "Traitor", "Judas", "Scum", and "Mercenary" were hung up by supporters before he was loudly jeered as he ran onto the pitch and a pig's head was infamously lobbed at him.

When Figo jogged across to take a corner in the 72nd minute, fans started hurling objects at him.

In among the coins and bottles settled a severed pig's head – how delightful.

The Iceland team took Euro 2016 by storm with a string of brave performances which included booting England out of the tournament.

But it wasn't just the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jón Daði Böðvarsson and Aron Gunnarsson who captured the imagination with their sparkling performances on the pitch.

The thunderclap was a major theme throughout Euro 2016 as minnows Iceland defied the odds to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

Performed by fans and players alike, the chant, which swept across the world after Iceland brought it to fame, became iconic as the country performed above all expectations during the last Euro tournament.


Fans of Liverpool certainly know how to make an intimidating atmosphere.

Walking out at Anfield to the sound of You'll Never Walk Alone and the noise of the Kop stand makes it a difficult stadium for anyone to play in.

John Terry once described playing at Anfield as a "nightmare" saying it was "the worst and the best ground to go to".

The Reds certainly rank among the most intimidating fans in England, and also some of the craziest.

Known as The Red Wall, Wales fans have had plenty to sing about in recent years.

Another team to perform beyond expectation by reaching the semi-final of Euro 2016, supporters have had a tougher time getting behind their team this time around.

Despite having to travel more than 3,000 miles to watch their team play in Baku against both Switzerland and Turkey, hundreds still made the trip.

They were sent away happy as well, with a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in the opening game being followed up with a 2-0 win against Turkey as the team reached the last 16 of the tournament.

You're probably not the only person reading this who's never heard of FC Magdeburg.

But when the lower league German side went five games without scoring a single goal, the club's fans came up with a unique way to help the side.

They each held giant, luminous cardboard arrows up – pointing to the goal.

A giant banner behind the goal even read: "Don't worry, chaps, we'll show you where the goal is!"

Euro 2020 was Scotland's first major tournament since 1998 – and Tartan Army fans partied hard enough to make up for the barren years.

With their team taking on the auld enemy of England at Wembley, Scots travelled down in their thousands to make sure their boys knew how well they were supported.

Thousands have lined the streets of London for one giant booze-up which included pouring bottles of washing-up liquid into the Trafalgar Square fountain, chanting "we hate f****** England" and generally getting messy. Well played.

When Manchester United travelled to play Galatasaray in Turkey for the first time in 1993, they were met with banners saying "Welcome to Hell" and intimidated throughout their time in the Turkish capital.

As the teams came out the stadium erupted as the home fans made a clear effort to intimidate the United players.

"There were so many flares and so much smoke, it seemed the entire stadium was on fire," Gary Neville later recalled.
