The disgruntled woman wrote a message for him on a banner, slung over a busy duel carriageway in Birmingham where thousands of motorists pass by each day.

The angry message, scrawled in patriotic red and white, read: "I hope the quarter finals are worth missing our anniversary for – don't rush back!"

From the banner, we're led to assume that Chris was one of the fans who has flown to watch England play Italy in the quarter-finals in Kiev on Sunday.

Driver James Sporren, who drove under the banner, said he had sympathy with the man in question.

He told Yahoo! News UK: "He's just enjoying a chance to support his country in a major tournament - and that doesn't come along very often.

"You shouldn't make a man pick between his woman and his country. They will have an anniversary every year - this is our best chance for a long time."
