Oblivious Twitter user bears the brunt of frustrated England supporters

It was a funny old first half in Marseille.

In many ways, it was a convincing attacking display for England, with Roy Hodgson's men creating chance after chance against a Russian side that were quite clearly struggling to cope.

The only problem was that England didn't manage to put the ball in the back of the net (not legally, anyway).

As the half-time whistle approached, many England fans vented their frustration on Twitter.

Thousands of miles away, one man in Pittsburgh - seemingly blissfully unaware of Hodgson's side's inability to convert their first half chances - received more than his fair share of exasperated tweets.

Why? All because his Twitter handle is the same as one of the England boss's nicknames....

Eventually, '@woy' (real name Mike Woycheck), was prompted to respond.

Poor Mike. We can only imagine what his notifications were like following Russia's late, late equaliser in Marseille.

We get the impression that Mike may be getting plenty more of these tweets during and in the run up to the crucial clash between England and Wales next Thursday.

With Wales sitting two points clear of their neighbours following their 2-1 victory over Slovakia in Bordeaux, England will be desperate for a win.
