Jamie Carragher completely messed up his tweet before England and Liverpool games

A.S. Roma v Liverpool - UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg

It seems everybody in England has been swept away by World Cup fever right now.

The Three Lions embarked on their first quarter-final in the competition since 2006 and with Sweden posing an easier than normal challenge, the country was feeling optimistic.

And England had already given supporters plenty to cheer about this summer.

Harry Kane's later winner against Tunisia caused delirium in pubs and living rooms alike, there were no less than six goals to celebrate in the Panama game and England finally ended their penalty shootout hoodoo against Colombia.

So there was great excitement about the possibility of overcoming Sweden and 'only' having to face Russia or Croatia in the final four.

England and Liverpool clash

However, believe it or not, there was actually another match taking place during Sweden vs England.

In what seems the mother of all scheduling gaffes, Liverpool kicked off their pre-season campaign with a trip to Chester during the World Cup quarter-final.

Yet surely even the most dedicated of Kopites would turn their attention to England, right?


Carragher bottled his funny tweet

Well, a certain Jamie Carragher sought to make fun of the unfortunate game clash just before their respective 15:00 kick offs.

The Liverpool legend tweeted a photograph of his family watching a graphic displaying 'Chester vs Liverpool' on a large screen in his garden.

The opportunity for a funny tweet was there for all to see but Carragher seemed to completely mess things up.

Instead of penning an amusing caption, it seems his social media manager posted Carragher's message to him. Take a look:

Fans are baffled

Can we get a taxi for Carragher please?

Quite what went wrong with the tweet is unknown and the same goes for whether Carragher is genuinely watching a Liverpool friendly over England's quarter-final.

Whatever happened, he seems to have taken it well with a series of retweets of replies mocking the original post.

Instead of deleting the tweet, it appears Carragher is just enjoying the attention it's bringing in anyway.

That all being said, it will take some pretty spectacular debuts from Fabinho and Naby Keita to overshadow the England game, win or lose.

No doubt Carragher will switch his big screen to the BBC at some point.
