England cricket heroes mock Tom Curran with John Terry jibes as reserve wears full kit in World Cup celebrations – The Sun

ENGLAND'S cricket heroes mocked Tom Curran with John Terry jibes after the reserve celebrated yesterday's World Cup win in his full kit.

The hosts won the tournament for the first time since it started in 1975 after defeating New Zealand in an ultra-dramatic sudden-death Super Over at Lord’s.


Triumphant England fans were pictured going wild last night long after Eoin Morgan's men had already popped the champagne – while the players partied hard with their Wags afterwards.

And despite not featuring in a single match in the World Cup, Curran was pictured in full kit as he enjoyed a beer with the rest of the squad.

However, the South-African born star was teased by team-mate Liam Dawson, who nicknamed him John Terry for his celebrations.

Former Chelsea captain Terry famously donned a full strip and shin pads after the Champions League final in 2012 to lift the trophy – despite not playing.

And when injured the following May, the 38-year-old repeated his antics following the 2-1 Europa League final victory over Benfica.

Once Branislav Ivanovic hit Chelsea's winner, JT changed from a suit into complete playing kit faster than Clark Kent becomes Superman.

However, the Aston Villa assistant poked fun at his own famous double appearance by trolling himself in a SoccerAid promo earlier this year.

Curran meanwhile is set to swap his kit for a sharp suit as he joins the rest of the world champions at a glitzy No10 reception after Theresa May invited them to Downing Street.

The cricket-loving PM gushed over the team's "brilliant performance" and this morning announced she would host a party for the squad.
