Hilarious Tweets From Last Night's 'England - Malta' Game
Trust Twitter to always see the lighter side of things!
Many mixed emotions were felt last night, as Malta's national football team lost 2 - 0 against England in the 2018 World Cup qualifier. Although Maltese keeper Andrew Hogg's performance shone bright, the internet was not too impressed with England's performance, here's a roundup of some of the funnier tweets from the game:
The sarcasm was strong with some
Well at least you can say there are no easy internationals anymore. As Malta are finding out - they thought they'd piss this.— Danny Baker (@prodnose) October 8, 2016
And of course there were loads of jokes about Malta's part-timers

But most England fans were just upset about the fact that they didn't win by a landslide
2-0. Bra-vo you crumbs.— Danny Baker (@prodnose) October 8, 2016
In Malta there's one wi-fi router on a table down by the harbour & that serves everyone just fine. #MaltaSoSmallThat

You gotta give it to them, they're not exactly wrong.
With some brutal takedowns against England
Andrew Hogg's jab didn't go unnoticed
'We were playing against some of the best players in the world.' I quite liked the Malta goalkeeper until he started taking the piss.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) October 8, 2016
But it did warrant some of the most tragic puns of all time
@paddypower Hogg's never won a major trough-y and he never swill 🐽— Ross Hancock (@SCFCRoss) October 8, 2016
Go home dad, you're drunk.
There was of course the tweet that everyone misunderstood
easy game, up against a bunch of farmers no ones ever heard of, keep possession well and it should be an easy 3 points for Malta— adam (@FutboyAdam) October 8, 2016
You see it's funny because... oh never mind.
And of course, no roundup is complete without this constant reminder of Rooney's shame
How funny is that Rooney gets nutmeg by a chef— Alan weston (@weston75) October 8, 2016
But the jury's still out on what his other job is
Wayne Rooney just got nutmegged by a Maltese fish monger. #ENGMAL 👀— Rick-NuclearFootball (@CanGunn444) October 8, 2016
Even though everyone knew he shouldn't have been playing when the 'nutmeg' above happened.
