Jesse Lingard wears Declan Rice shirt with PARROT on shoulder in pub as he cheers on England for Euro 2020 opener
JESSE LINGARD popped a parrot on his shoulder as he cheered on England from a pub garden.
The midfielder did not make Gareth Southgate's final 26-man squad despite a stunning end to the season on loan at West Ham.
But he was all smiles as he enjoyed a day out with friends in glorious sunshine on Sunday afternoon.
Lingard, 28, donned an England shirt with Declan Rice's name and number on the back.
Also wearing a bucket hat and sunglasses, he posed with a parrot on his shoulder for the post to his social media channels.
He captioned the snap: "COME ON ENGLAND!!"
A number of happy punters waved at the camera as Lingard's camera scanned the venue where he took in the Three Lions opener.
And he went live immediately after Raheem Sterling's opener, filming the pub garden's wild celebrations as England got their Euro 2020 campaign underway.

Rice and Lingard struck up a friendship during the Manchester United man's time at West Ham.
When his loan spell ended, England anchor man Rice posted on his Instagram: "This is emotional brother! Absolute pleasure to share the pitch and changing room with you again!
"You're going to be missed massively mate."
Lingard returned to the Three Lions fold in the spring and had been called up to Southgate's provisional squad of 33.
