Twitter’s Humorous take on England’s Warsaw Washout


Whilst Roy and the boys were left pondering the fiasco in the Warsaw stadium last night millions of us were left with time on our hands as the Fifa officials were deciding what to do with the ball.

For some of us the drama was too much ”

Please postpone it now. Enough is enough! Why can’t I bring myself to change channels?

Whilst Roy insisted on proving his point !


Some fans got bored and took to the pitch !

Phil McNulty ‏@philmcnulty
Pitch invader escapes a steward who – rather predictably – goes flying in the water. Invader then does a Tom Daley. It’s that sort of night.

Roy and the boys just didnt know what to do ?


Well the social media world just got on with it a and for some of us provided some much needed humour with the game of ” Rain related footballers”

I’m told the officials in Poland can’t make an announcement until the end of Great British Bake Off…

Karthi Gnanasegaram ‏@KarthiSport
ITV must be desperate for this game to happen tonight…it’s their Live Emmerdale tomorrow so won’t get any pre-match build up time.


Henry Winter ‏@henrywinter
Warsaw DJ on form….now playing Coldplay’s “Every teardrop is a waterfall”

Alec Stewart ‏@StewieCricket
Roy Hodgson to make two team changes if the game starts tonight. Tom Daley and Rebecca Adlington to play up front in place of Defoe & Rooney


Owen Gibson ‏@owen_g
Lee Dixon wishing he was back on MOTD, Gareth Southgate wishing he was back at the FA, Adrian Chiles thinking even Daybreak wasn’t this bad

Alec Stewart ‏@StewieCricket
If this was a cricket match in Poland we’d have started on time and played through the light drizzle!



As an act of mercy, ITV will point the cameras at the pitch the remaining 75 mins of this broadcast so we can watch the grass grow instead
