Football Virals: Paper airplane high jinx at England – Peru game


It seems the highlight of last night’s England game against Peru at Wembley was not what happened on the field, but what happened off it.

England fan Blair Valentine in his boredom decided to make a paper airplane and launched it from the top tier. In what will go down as arguably the greatest paper airplane moment in recent years, Valentine’s creation flew all the way to the pitch and found a target in the head of Peru’s right midfielder.

I doubt he could pull off that shot even if he tried too.

But in terms of England, if a paper airplane can overshadow their game, then they really need to up their performance.
