Rascal Teenager in England Uniform Sneaks onto Field During Open Practice, Fools No One (Video)
An English teenager named Harry Peak had a great idea this week: show up to the English national team’s open practice ahead of this weekend’s friendly against Turkey wearing a full England uniform. Then sneak onto the pitch and try to blend in with the team.
Of course, there are very good reasons not to do this, including the possibility of getting arrested, or fired from your job, or beaten up by security, or banned from English national team games for life, or causing undo anxiety on behalf of security officials less than a week after a Manchester United game was called off due to a bomb threat. But, being the teenager that he is, Harry didn’t really think about all that. He just went for it.
Needless to say, the stunt did not work. Harry was out there for about two seconds before players and coaches were like, who the f#&%’s this guy?
Take a look:
As you can see, Harry did not get roughed up by security. But he probably will be banned for life, and he did get suspended by Pirate FM, the radio station where he works as the host of the Youth Show.
Naturally, Mr. Peak took to Twitter to issue an apology for his stunt:

The good news for this kid is that the radio station he worked for is also the one who published the video and are capitalizing on the fact that it went viral. So chances are his suspension won’t be permanent.
