What could possibly go wrong when Ryan Giggs when he decided he would be a pundit for ITV during Portugal’s match with Poland?
Well, about from the whole of Twitter mocking you for your appearance.
No, it wasn’t anything the Welshman was wearing that got social media talking. It was, in fact, his lack of eyebrows.

That’s right. It appeared that the Manchester United legend has shaved off his eyebrows ahead of his punditry debut.
Take a look at the best reaction below:
Today is a big day for Giggs, not only because he was appearing on TV. At midnight tonight, his contract as assistant manager of Manchester United expires.
With the arrival of Jose Mourinho, Giggs will be replaced by the Special One’s trusted right-hand man in Rui Faria as assistant manager at the club.
The Portuguese boss was keen to keep Giggs at the club but, according to the Daily Mail, he will end his 29-year association with the club by turning it down.
The main reason for wanting to leave the club is so that Giggs can focus on pursuing a career in management. He won’t want to look on Twitter when he gets back home, though, because it’s full of people trolling him for his lack of eyebrows.
But Giggs’ eyebrows weren’t the only talking point on Twitter during his appearance on ITV. Giggs raised eyebrows (see what we did there) when he suggested former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal could become the next England manager.
When asked to name some people who could replace Hodgson, the former winger said: "Hoddle, Venables, Sir Alex Ferguson, Louis van Gaal."
