The FIFA media account is not very accurate

by 7 years ago

FIFA, the international governing body of soccer, has its own Twitter media account. Presumably one that tweets out accurate information about the comings and goings of worldwide soccer. This morning, however, they had a bit of a misstep.

“A year ago today, Japan beat Germany in the FIFA Women’s World Cup final.”

Oops. They deleted the tweet rather quickly but not before U.S. soccer star Alex Morgan chimed in.

Given Morgan, you know, played in the game, I understand her dismay. So, on an otherwise slow sports day, let’s all laugh at FIFA for a few hours.
