A bitter English supporter has demanded England stop paying for the tournament after losing to Wales

Who knew Wales’ victory over England was linked to the UK’s continued membership of the EU?

In Wales we haven’t stopped celebrating since Saturday’s inspirational victory but over the border some English fans are a little miffed.

Wales won 28-25 at Twickenham despite being up against it and suffering a host of serious injuries.

But not everyone was impressed.

commentThis English fan headed to MailOnline’s comment section to demand England shut down the World Cup… and leave the EU.

On an article about the amazing Welsh win, Jessica_Hamby posted this hilarious message: “Why should we continue to pay for and support a tournament that we’re no longer in.

“We should shut the whole thing down immediately and if these nations want their so-called World Cup let them have it elsewhere.

“This is no different from the anti-english bias at the Eurovision Song Contest.

“Now they even let Italians and their sort on the X Factor. Time to quit the EU FOR EVER.”

On another article about Welsh hero Dan Biggar, Jessica_Hamby posted: “This sort of arrogance and triumphalism is just more proof, if any were needed, that a Welshman can NEVER be a gentleman.”

We have no idea if she’s reflecting her genuine beliefs or indulging in a bit of trolling.

But it made us laugh.
