Strikers have only one chance to score, but ITV commentator Clive Tyldesley got a second bite at the cherry in yesterday’s Scotland v England game after making a blunder during England’s opening goal.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opened the scoring for England with a neat-headed goal. The trouble is, Tyldesley thought it was Wayne Rooney…
Social media means there’s no hiding for Tyldesley, but spare a thought for the ITV man.
Remember, English football’s greatest piece of commentary ever – “They think it’s all over…” – only came about after a moment of utter confusion. Kenneth Wolstenholme would be glad Twitter wasn’t around in 1966.
