Joe Gomez was abused by Liverpool fans after congratulating Wayne Rooney on Twitter

Joe Gomez took to Twitter to congratulate Wayne Rooney last night.

The England captain scored his 50th goal for England, surpassing Bobby Charlton's long standing national team record, as England won 2-0 against Switzerland.

Liverpool defender Gomez, like many other England fans, congratulated Rooney on reaching milestone.

However, some Liverpool fans on Twitter didn't take kindly to a player congratulating the captain of bitter rivals Manchester United and the backlash became so great Gomez deleted the tweet.


Thankfully, there were also some more level headed Liverpool fans who saw no foul in Gomez's tweet.
