England fans fume on Twitter after secretary general of the European Commission ‘trolls’ fans

A senior Brussels official provoked outrage last night with a tweet that appeared to mock England’s exit from the World Cup.

Martin Selmayr, secretary general of the European Commission, posted a series of EU flags and football emojis just minutes after the end of the match in Moscow.

Fans interpreted the message as a dig at England because it seemingly referred to the fact that two EU countries – France and Croatia – had made it to the final.

Mr Selmayr, however, posted an almost identical tweet on Saturday after Croatia and England reached the semi-finals. 

But Three Lions fans responded by telling the politician to ‘go home’. 

‘Absolutely pathetic – you are the lowest of the low,’ wrote one. 

‘This is one way to alienate pro European British people like me – you are a disgrace.’

Another critic added: ‘A disgraceful tweet that absolutely epitomises why the UK is leaving the EU.

‘You deserve credit for exemplifying the sheer arrogance of unelected bureaucrats so well!’

A third commented: ‘Class is something you are born with. Is it any wonder most Brits voted to say goodbye to the EU with people like you helping to run it and showing absolutely no class whatsoever.’

In contrast, Prince William posted a tweet saying he ‘couldn’t be more proud’ of the England team after the semi-final defeat.
