A boxer dog is backing England for the World Cup with his very own St George’s cross.

Cooper watched England on Saturday at his Western Avenue home in Buckingham and will be painted up ready for today, Thursday’s match too.

Owner David Roach, 52, is continuing the tradition of dressing his dog after his previous dog, Stanley, who died in 2010, wore the same painted cross for South Africa four years ago and for Germany 2006.

Warehouse worker Mr Roach said: “We’ve got to hope for the win but Cooper will be with me watching.”
