Having waited several decades for the moment to arrive, one Wales fan conspired to miss his country’s first win at a major international tournament for 58 years by sleeping through the entire thing.
With the anthems already sung, one supporter – who was quite possibly a few shandies in by this point – nodded off in the stands mere minutes before kick-off and promptly managed to miss the entirety of Wales’ historic 2-1 victory over Slovakia.
Not even the presence of Welsh rugby legend Shane Williams was enough to stir him from his slumber…
What happens when you’re drunk and sleep through the national anthem? Shane turns up and shakes you by the scalp. pic.twitter.com/MGFV1THEgh

“The guy didn’t wake up until the end of the match and when I showed him the picture he couldn’t believe it!” fellow fan Huw Tomos-Griffiths told Wales Online.
Still, it’s not like he paid hundreds of pounds to be there or anything.
