Watch moment romantic Turkey fan proposes to girlfriend at Euro 2020 opener vs Italy in Rome

FORGET the football, love was the winner at the Euro 2020 opener between Italy v Turkey.

This Turkey fan chose a moment during the game to propose to his girlfriend, while watching from the stands.

The romantic supporter dropped to one knee in front of his partner to ask for her hand in marriage.


He was ably cheered on by fellow fans, who captured the proposal on film, as he slipped a ring on to his shocked missus' finger.

The embarrassed female fan held her hands in her face before accepting the sparkler and giving her man a hug.

A video of the proposal has been shared on Instagram - and has received over 1.5million likes.

While off the pitch, these two Turks were smiling - on it their team wasn't.

Calgar Soyuncu an Co couldn't stop their side falling to an embarrassing 3-0 defeat in their first game.

An own goal by Merih Demiral set Italy on their way - with goals by Ciro immobile and Lorenzo Insigne adding gloss to the performance.

But a Turkish humbling wasn't going to ruin this couple's special day.
