England supporters are so giddy at the World Cup fever that they started sharing a fake tweet from defender Harry Maguire.

After beating Sweden to reach the semi-finals, the Three Lions is within touching distance of lifting the trophy for only the second time.

The entirety of the current England team has made the country fall in love with international football again, and some unlikely heroes have risen to national treasure status.

One of those heroes is Maguire, who scored the opener against Sweden with a thumping header as he continued his impressive showing in Russia.

After Maguire's goal, an images of a supposed tweet by the Leicester City man back in 2016 went viral.
