thumbnail Hello,

The social media networking site was, ahem, awash with jokes after rainfall meant the Three Lions' World Cup qualifying match in Warsaw had to be re-scheduled

After England's 2014 World Cup qualifier with Poland was postponed due to authorities forgetting to shut the stadium roof before predicted heavy rainfall, Twitter was predictably full of jokes from players and fans alike.

Rio Ferdinand and Gary Lineker were both on hand to offer their thoughts, whilst Ashley Cole was happy to turn to the TV instead of the playing field.

A number of other qualifiers did go ahead as planned, however, with Johan Djourou, Asmir Begovic and Vincent Kompany all delighted with their respective results.
