‘Are you trolling?’ – Fifa hit by fan backlash over World Cup gaffe as they advertise semi-final between England and USA

FIFA were left with egg on their face after accidentally tweeting an advertisement showing a World Cup semi-final between England and USA.

Argentina take on Croatia for a place in the final in Qatar on Tuesday night.

Fifa made a blunder by posting an image of England and USA ahead of the semi-finals

On the other side of the draw, defending champions France will take on Morocco on Wednesday.

And while the two last-four clashes were correct on Fifa’s official website, the tweet football’s governing body sent out showed an image of England vs USA – with Harry Kane and Christian Pulisic plastered over it.

Alongside it, they added the caption: “A spot in the final awaits! You won’t want to miss tonight’s action!”

England were knocked out in the quarter-finals by France, while USA exited in the last-16 after losing to Holland.

It was clearly a picture Fifa did not realise would show up when they sent out the link.

And the tweet was swiftly deleted a few minutes after being posted.

But not before some social media users spotted the blatant mistake and reacted to the mishap.

One person said: “Are you trolling Kane?”


While another added: “FIFA have reinstated England and the USA apparently.”

Meanwhile, England fans still devastated by the France loss were left wishing Fifa’s mistake had in fact happened for real.

One said: “The better parallel universe.”

And another replied: “I wanna live in that timeline please.”
