Scotland legend Graeme Souness has painfully admitted that his son supports England.
It comes after begrudgingly stating that the Three Lions are set to win Euro 2020 this summer because “the stars are aligned”.
The ITV pundit played 54 times for Scotland between 1974 and 1986 and is a legend for his country, known for his hard-hitting midfield prowess but also his passing range.
And his no-nonsense style has translated to his punditry, while he is working with ITV during the Euros this summer.
Usually joined by Mark Pougatch and Roy Keane, Souness had to admit to them that his son has been cheering on the Three Lions this year.
He said in the ITV studio: “My son goes to the games with his England shirt on singing ‘Football’s Coming Home’ – it’s hard at home at the moment!”
When asked if he has told his son that it is not coming home, Souness added: “I said that after the Scottish game. And I don’t think that any England supporter thought after that game that football was coming home.”
It comes after the former Liverpool star revealed his winner for the tournament this summer.
He added: “I’ve got to be difficult with my words here because I’ve said this before… England and English football has been very good to me.
“I think they’re going to win it. I think the stars have aligned beautifully. Seven games, six of them at home.
You can look at this one coming up against Ukraine – [they are] obvious favourites, that doesn’t mean to say they’re going to get through, though I think they will.
The next game is against Denmark [if they beat Czech Republic], not an easy game, the Dane’s are always big, physical and aggresive.
“Then the final, no matter who they play, at Wembley, with the majority of the crowd, I see them winning it.
I’ve been critical of their style of play, it certainly doesn’t get me on the edge of my seat, but it’s pragmatic and it gets results.
“If they end up winning the tournament, no-one’s going to end up talking about their style of football.”
England face Ukraine tonight at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome with Gareth Southgate set to make changes to his side.
Mason Mount is set to be recalled to the first-team while there could be a start for Jadon Sancho, who has recently agreed to become a Manchester United player.
