Top Football Tweets: Everyone is making memes about the Oscars

March 29th, 2022

It a weekend of drama at the Oscars and blockbuster, Hollywood action in the National League.

While Twitter has been overtaken by the fallout from Will Smith hitting Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars ceremony, Wrexham and Dover Athletic exchanged blows in a heavyweight encounter and Hollywood star, and Wrexham owner, Ryan Reynolds could barely stand the drama.

Plus, elsewhere, Christian Eriksen gave us another feel-good moment.

All of this and more, is among this weekend’s best football tweets.

1. Everyone’s making the same joke

The biggest talking point of the weekend happened outside of a footballing arena – when Will Smith hit Chris Rock at the Oscars, in response to the comedian, who was presenting at the awards show, making a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Nobody has been able to stop discussing it since and there has been a scramble by football accounts to make a sporting analogy, from Lee Bowyer’s famous on-field fight with team-mate Kieron Dyer

…to former Manchester United player Marouane Fellaini taking a ball to the face.

2. Going early

The US men’s team enjoyed a big win on Sunday – beating Panama 5-1 in World Cup qualifying. They slightly jumped the gun with their post-match celebrations, however, as the team unveiled a banner reading, ‘qualified’ on-field, despite the fact that there is still a game left to play.

It’s all been a bit much for some, including World Cup winner Heather O’Reilly.

3. Hollywood action

Among all of the Oscars chaos, there was some real drama in the National League on Saturday, where Wrexham went from 2-0 up against Dover Athletic, to 5-2 down, before eventually coming back to win the match 6-5, with two stoppage-time goals.

Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds is a co-owner of the Welsh club. He said that the match shaved years off his life and spoke about being buried in Wales

If Wrexham, chasing promotion back to the EFL, play many more games like that one, he may want to invest in a plot soon.

4. The Swiss ditch their neutrality

A home win over Switzerland helped England make it eight games unbeaten since they lost the Euro 2020 final to Italy on penalties.

Italy have subsequently and rather shockingly failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup and their European neighbours Switzerland wasted no time in reminding them.
