Mia Khalifa and West Ham

Lucky mascot for Arsenal win but Mia remains a committed Hammer

But she proved she’s a Hammer for life when she donned the new home kit over 5,000 miles away in the Mojave desert as she stopped off during a visit to Area 51.

Area 51 is the common name of the highly classified United States Air Force facility in the Nevada Test and Training Range.

It is associated with aliens and is known as the extraterrestrial highway linked to several conspiracy theories over the years.

Khalifa had her new Umbro home shirt emblazoned with ‘Mia 1’ as she posed in the desert on her journey to Area 51.
