“This is Douglas. He was at our hotel in Volgograd. We’ve just bumped in to him in Nizhny Novgorod & he’s realized he’s left his match tickets in the drawer at home in Bristol. If anyone’s got a spare one let me know.”

This tweet sent out by one Dan H has been doing the rounds bringing to light a football fan who did the unthinkable – reaching Russia and then realizing he has left his ticket back home. The ‘lost Douglas’ story led to a hunt for tickets.

The story didn’t end there. When someone finally managed a ticket for him, Dan was nowhere to be found. The next to be heard on the story was this: “I’m afraid he only got back to his hotel 40 mins before kick off. Couldn’t get to the stadium in time to pick the ticket up.”

End of the day, what stood were words of advice, even lament: “I know but who leaves their World Cup tickets in a flippin’ drawer at home in England.”

The last we heard about him was that he was back in Bristol.
