German football club confuses fans with ‘porn reference’ on Twitter

1 minute reading time

Football terminology can be confusing for people who aren’t fans of the sport. Sometimes, however, it can be confusing for die-hard fans as well, as German football club VFL Wolfsburg showed on their English language Twitter account…

 

1. Something very strange happened in the 84th minute of the game between German football teams VFL Wolfsburg and FSV Mainz 05…

 

2. Wait a second…

 

3. What does that say?

 

4. Oh wow… 

 

5. That is just… shocking.

 

6. People are rightfully confused.

 

7. No words necessary.

 

8. Well, that escalated quickly…

 

9. At least the fans are prepared.

 

10. But fortunately the official Guardian style guide can clarify things… And please take their word for it.

 

Close call, Wolfsburg…
