The West Ham winger hand delivered a signed shirt of his, that he had promised for a charity in Birmingham, after he left it too late to post – it’s always funny visualising famous people doing mundane, normal tasks like the rest of us; Zlatan Ibrahimovic hoovering, Kevin De Bruyne pegging out washing or how about Per Mertesacker getting his passport photo done.
Antonio drove up to Birmingham after West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough:
I knew they wanted it for the auction that night, so I thought I’d drop it off after the game before carrying on to see my family.
Oh why you’re here, lap up the seven footballers that appeal to all genders
Antonio has made back-to-back England squads, with Gareth Southgate agreeing with predecessor, Sam Allardyce, that the Hammers unit deserves some Three Lions recognition.
With Raheem Sterling pulling out through injury, Antonio should 100% be starting on the right-wing, and you like to think, given a few of Southgate’s comments, he is the man brave enough to fuck with the status quo and give England’s most in-form player a chance.
