FANS are convinced Kyle Walker was booked TWICE – but the defender stayed on as ten-man England beat Italy.
Baffled viewers posted “you couldn’t make it up” after believing Walker picked up yellow cards in the 53rd and 71st minutes.
Betting sites and even the BBC briefly recorded the right-back as picking up two cautions as the Euro 2024 qualifier heated up.
But it appears the first one could have been mistakenly announced – as fans were stunned when he remained on the field after a later booking for time-wasting.
And in the end it was Luke Shaw who saw yellow twice – leaving the Three Lions clung on for a 2-1 triumph in Naples.
One viewer posted: “Kyle Walker received two yellow cards and is still on the pitch LMFAO.. Yu can’t make this sh*t up.”
Another said: “Wait what!! So who got booked earlier then ?”
Five yellow cards were handed out to England in all – including two to Shaw.
That meant a nervy finale for Gareth Southgate’s men.
They looked comfortable at 2-0 up, courtesy of Declan Rice’s rebound finish and Harry Kane’s penalty, which took the skipper to an England record of 54 goals.

But Mateo Retegui rammed home a fine response on 54 minutes.
And as the Azzurri racked up the pressure, England rattled up the bookings – ultimately leading to confusion.
