Quite a bit tougher with names rather than words
Football fans have begun posting their scores on Twitter, with some mixed results.
“Not my best effort but throwing a tantrum with a random word on the 5th go paid dividends,” wrote one fan.
Another added: “Class. Considering most of ft can’t spell a single players surname correctly this will be fun.”
