Cardinal jokes about England’s exit from Euro 2016

  • Written by:
  • 1 Reply

South African Cardinal Wilfrid Napier took to Twitter to joke about England’s humiliating exit from the European Championships in France.

On Monday night England lost the last-16 knockout match 2-1 to Iceland, a country with a population of just over 300,000 and which is competing in a major football tournament for the first time in its history. England manager Roy Hodgson resigned in the wake of the defeat.

In a tweet sent after the match, Cardinal Napier referenced Britain’s vote to leave the EU, writing “even (England’s) soccer eleven has withdrawn from Europe!”

When another Twitter user suggested that Cardinal Napier was “mocking” the England team, he replied that he was an “ardent” supporter and was simply expressing his disappointment.

The Cardinal has previously revealed his support for Burnley FC, who will compete in the Premier League next season.

    God bless the people who elected to regain their nation, removing themselves from the clutches of global tyrany. England existed for a thousand years before foreigners dominated her. The people have risen against laws placed by an unelected dominator and against an invasion by Muslim barbarians.
