Desperate England fan's pant-dropping act couldn't prevent Italy's penalty shoot win

June 26, 2012 - London

A desperate England fan tried to sidetrack Italy's Alessandro Diamanti during the final penalty kick, which saw them clinch the Euro cup quarterfinal on a penalty shootout, by dropping his pants and exposing his willy.

But the unflustered Diamanti calmly stroked the ball past Joe Hart to send England out of Euro 2012.

Sharp-eyed TV viewers spotted the bit of last wheeze gamesmanship by the unidentified fan, who was wearing an England goalie's top and a red and white wig.

Yesterday photos of the climatic kick clearly show him with shorts and pants down round his knees, The Sun reports.

A pal beside him looks on the verge of doing the same but he apparently made his move too late.
