If Twitter is good for anything - it's exposing people for making ludicrously outrageous claims.

After England completed a shock comeback over world champions Germany, the Arsenal fan, who unfurled a banner calling for Arsene Wenger leave to the club, will now get a tattoo of the Gunners boss after he bet Jamie Vardy would not score against Germany last night.

The anti-Wenger campaigner shot to online fame earlier this year when he produced a banner at Arsenal's FA Cup with Hull reading "Arsene thanks for the memories but it's time to go."

The banner was condemned by Arsenal's former record goalscoring striker Ian Wright who dubbed the message "muggy."

Writing during England's friendly with Germany on Saturday evening, the fan, whose Twitter profile is DeejayDt, insisted he was so sure Jamie Vardy would not score that he offered to tattoo Arsene Wenger onto his body if he proved to be wrong.

In a truly delicious turn of events, the Leicester City striker came off the bench in Berlin to score his first England goal with just his third touch of the game.

Whilst the rest of the nation celebrated Jamie Vardy's cute equaliser in a thrilling 3-2 for England, the banner-loving Arsenal fan was less than pleased, tweeting: "You've got to be kidding me."

News of the amusing development quickly caught the attention of Ian Wright, who had previously rowed with the fan on Twitter.

The BT Sport pundit even made a suggestion for what the Gooner should get tattooed.

We all wait with baited breath to see what kind of design the disgruntled Arsenal fan goes with.

Arsenal play host to their FA Cup semi-final conquerors Watford on Saturday where only a win will keep their slim hopes of a title challenge alive.
