Twitter was up in arms after Ecuador opened the scoring against England and the finger of blame mainly fell on Chris Smalling but perhaps it should poked in the way of Phil Jagielka.
Sure, the Everton defender wasn’t actually playing… but he did positively jinx the team just before they conceded!
He took to Twitter with a selfie also featuring Liverpool duo Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard as they watched their England teammates from the sidelines.
A quality picture but the caption deserves less plaudits “Pitch side with some of the lads, decent start from the boys!” just moments before Ecuador opened the scoring!
