The postponement of Euro 2020 means England football fans must wait another year for their biennial bout of disappointment.

Supporters look forward to the Euros and World Cups with mounting excitement, only to be let down by the clowns on the pitch.

But now Euro 2020, which would have seen England as one of the favourites, only to fail hopelessly, has been put back 12 months owing to the coronavirus outbreak.

Sports behavioral scientist Dr Lorraine Fisher, 34, of Suffolk University, said: “The delay, unfortunately, means crushing defeat in the quarter-finals to Portugal will be even harder to take than normal.

“England fans will have had an extra year to build themselves into even more of a frenzy.

“Only to find that football isn’t coming home yet again.”

The tournament, due to take place from 12 June-12 July this summer, will now run from 11 June to 11 July next year.

Presuming anyone is left on the planet.
