The shirtless supporter was first spotted bustling through the crowds heading to the stadium on Wednesday evening in anticipation of England’s clash with Denmark.
But that was not his final appearance of the night as just a few hours later he resurfaced in a video filmed in the stands.
In the clip, the unnamed man – who was still shirtless – had joined a rousing rendition of Freed From Desire as he waved his arms wildly in the air.
However, the excitement proved a little too much as the supporter lost his balance and tumbled down into the row of seats in front of him with a thud.

One of his fellow fans, who was behind the camera, repeatedly shrieked ‘he’s gone’.
The man seemed unfazed however and, although he did not immediately jump back up to his feet, rejoined the chorus and swung his shirt around his head.
The clip, which has already been viewed more than 1.8 million times, was posted to Twitter last night alongside a caption that read: ‘I’m WEEING #EURO2020 #ENGDEN.’
The enthusiastic supporter was unfazed by his tumble and carried on singing, waving his short above his head, as he sat across several seats
Fans had good reason to celebrate with England now just one game from football glory following their 2-1 victory over Denmark after Harry Kane’s extra-time penalty-kick secured the Three Lions’ place in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final against Italy.
England’s nerve-racking game against the Danes went into extra time after the two sides drew 1-1 after 90 minutes, with Denmark’s Mikkel Damsgaard scoring the opening goal with a long-distance free-kick before England’s Raheem Sterling pressured an own goal.
As their victory was confirmed, shirtless fans packed into London’s Trafalgar Square fan zone sprayed beer over each other, singing ‘It’s Coming Home’ and praising manager Gareth Southgate’s team.

Vic Richards, 22, from Croydon, south London, said: ‘I’m still trying to compute what happened, I’ve never seen England make a final.
‘It’s beautiful, it’s unbelievable, I love this country, the players gave it their all. This is an historic occasion, we may never see this again – now we can start to believe.’
Other fans collapsed onto the ground crying with joy or partied on the tables. Oliver Ways, 28, from Mitcham, said: ‘This time it’s coming home, the momentum is with us, I don’t care what anyone says. I’m so drunk but I don’t care – the game was just how we wanted it.
‘I can’t believe I’m saying this but England are in a final!’
Wembley broke out into a chorus of Neil Diamond’s anthem Sweet Caroline after the final whistle blew, with 60,000 spectators including Prince William, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie, and 30 million people in homes and pubs across the country celebrating.
Last night’s victory is an historic achievement for England as it seals its place in Sunday’s final against Italy – the first major tournament final the side have managed to reach since the 1966 World Cup.
The nerve-shredding 2-1 extra-time victory was also watched by 25.8million people at the moment England won on ITV1 – making it the most watched show of 2021 and the ninth most watched ‘special event’ in British TV history.

More than 66,000 people – joined by Prince William, Mr Johnson and a who’s who of celebrities – packed the stands in Britain’s biggest post-pandemic crowd.
And those fans played a crucial role as they roared their Three Lions heroes home – the 2-1 semi-final win coming by way of a Harry Kane goal in extra time. Gareth Southgate’s man now face Italy on Sunday.
Overnight figures show that three-quarters of all people watching TV last night tuned in for the game – and more than half the entire adult population were watching the football between 8pm and the 10.30pm peak.
Experts are predicting ‘huge numbers’ for Sunday’s final with Italy and are pondering whether it could beat the most watched show ever – the 1966 World Cup Final – where an estimated 32.3million tuned in across the UK.
