The 'Will Grigg's On Fire' meme has reached one very confused American

Her name is Petra Fyde.

FOR THE WHOLE of Euro 2016 so far, there has been one chant and one chant only that has dominated proceedings.

And that’s Will Grigg’s on Fire.

It’s been repurposed for Shane Long – with brilliant effect – but it truly belongs to Northern Ireland’s Will Grigg.

This “prank” call to the Northern Ireland fire brigade went super viral on Facebook

Now there is another poor victim to the phenomenon.

And her name is American woman Petra Fyde

She’s been getting countless messages from Northern Ireland fans with the slightly amended lyrics of:

Will Grigg’s on fire, your defence is petra fyde!

Normally, it’s “terrified” but the pun stands.

Petra’s status has been shared over 4000 times since yesterday.

She’s not the first to get such messages

Terry Feidt!

This chant will never end. Will Grigg will always be on fire, and your defence will permanently be terrified.
