Tex, a former musician in the British Army and a Major in the army cadets, is in Denver, Colorado, for Thanksgiving with his American wife, Peggy.
He is watching the England/USA game with his brothers-in-law and knows that he will be hugely outnumbered.
"I have lived in Shrewsbury for 25 years after retiring from the army at Copthorne barracks," he said.
"The family is divided over who should win. However I am wearing my English rose with pride."
