After another one of 'those' England performances, the Three Lions are now on the brink of qualification for the 2018 World Cup.

It was hardly the best start to the match when England conceded a goal after less than three minutes of play, however, they scraped their way through the game to beat Slovakia 2-1.

As you can guess, a lot of fans don't have much hope for England's chances next year, and took to Twitter to voice their opinion.

However, some people decided to have a better outlook on the result and potential qualification, and all managed to crack the same joke.

The rivalry between Russian and English fans during last year's Euro Championship got bloody and violent, with police using tear gas to disperse the hooligans.

About 50 Russian fans had to be deported from France, while the team was fined €150,000 (£138,010). Clashes broke out across the country, including Lille and Marseille, where several people were hospitalised with various injuries.

There is one man, however, who might not be watching Gareth Southgate's men playing in Russia or ever again for that matter. Teenager Jake Peachey was watching England take on Malta away from home when he told his Twitter followers he'd run onto the field if he got 400 retweets.

Sure enough, he reached his target and in the 69th minute he jumped onto the pitch before being promptly caught by security. He reportedly spent a night in a jail cell before being fined €200 (£184). He was banned from entering Maltese sporting facilities for a year, but could also face a travel ban from UK authorities.

His case is ongoing and the 16-year-old could even be banned by the FA from England matches.
