The long wait for England fans is finally over, as the campaign for fighting begins in earnest this evening in Volgograd.
England fan, Peter Thape intends to make the most of the historically rich Russian city by drinking enough beer to make England seem like a good team.
Thape has additionally been using his drinking time to practice his quotes for the TV crews after tonight’s table throwing, tear gas, bloodied nonsense.
‘The Russian police just came at us,’ practiced Thape.
‘We’ve done nothing. We was just sitting there, having a quiet drink,’ added Thape.
