However, Dennis Miller from Huddersfield has been preaching his profound love of his country in pubs, at work and at his home, claiming that "Eng-er-land" are still going "score one more than you", despite their exit from the competiton.
The headteacher of the school called Dennis's wife Vivian into school one morning to ask if there were problems at home.
'Apparently some of my daughter's friends had passed by our house. Dennis still had two huge England flags hanging from our windows. People must have thought we were mad."
During the day of the flag incident, Dennis is reported to have tweeted: "omw to work with england flags blowing on either side of the mazda! Come on you reddddds (and whiiiiiites) Dennis M".
"He's harmless," said friend Chuck Billy. "He's just the ultimate casual fan. I don't think he's actually watched a game since Euro 96. But y'know, patriotism knows no boundaries."
Edit: since this article has been published, Dennis Miller contacted us claiming to actually be "a tenth Welsh".
