A former MEP’s trolling of the Spanish football team was a spectacular own goal

Turns out Spain wasn’t the only team to end up on the losing side last night.

Former MEP Lord John Kilclooney – a cross bench peer from Northern Ireland – took it upon himself to troll the Spanish players before their Euros semi-final defeat against Italy.

And it’s fair to say it didn’t end well for him, it didn’t end well at all.

Everyone, basically.

Here’s what he had to say later in response to one of the several million people putting him straight.

Didn’t delete the tweet, though.


This steward mistaking Italy’s Bonucci for a fan is the Euros’ funniest moment
