The Charlton were defeated by Wycombe in a League One clash – during which their Twitter administrator made an error.

The Addix were down 1-0 when Garth McCleary nearly doubled the visitors’ lead at The Valley.

Charlton’s Twitter wrote of the Wycombe attack: “49′ McCleary sees a sh*t deflection from the side of the box.”

And the wrong ‘I’ instead of the ‘O’ in the shot had Lineker reminding fans when he went on the pitch.

The Match of the Day host joked: “brings back memories”.

The incident happened in a group game against Ireland at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

The Leicester-born player, who played 80 matches for England, put England in trouble by scoring a goal during the first half itself.

The day before the match, Lineker suffered a bowel problem and, despite feeling drowsy on the pitch, refused to tell Robson that he was not well.

By the second half, when he tried to stretch the ball, he lost control of the field.

“There’s a little bit, if you ever see the footage where Gary Stevens comes in and asks what’s wrong.

“And I go, ‘I’ve done s*** myself.’ I didn’t know what to do.

“Thank god I had dark blue shorts on that day.

“I’m taking it out and rubbing myself on the grass like a dog.”

The presenter of the match of the day had to be defeated in the 83rd minute.
