A fan somehow predicted England would lose the Euro 2020 final on penalties to Italy eight years ago.
Back in 2013, @lawseyitfc made the scarily accurate prediction and tweeted it on his Blackberry. The exact date and time was 11:48am on February 22 and the tweet read: "England just lost the euro 2020 final against Italy on a penalty shoot out, nothing has changed then!"
The quite ridiculous forecast has gone viral on social media, with Ipswich Town fan Cameron seeing his post garnering over 84,000 retweets, 57,000 quote-tweets and a whopping 220,000 likes at the time of writing.

Prior to the game, Cameron replied to his own tweet and made an amend by swapping "won" in for "lost".
But unfortunately for Cameron and the rest of England fans, the Three Lions' first major final for 55 years played out exactly as he said it would.
Luke Shaw put everyone in dreamland early on when he finished superbly from a Kieran Trippier cross just two minutes in.
It was Shaw's first ever England goal and just so happened to be the fastest in the history of European Championship finals history as well.
Celebrations were wild all over the stadium and up and down the country but Gareth Southgate's reaction was a muted and understated one.
He knew it wasn't over and he was right, as in the second half Leonardo Bonucci levelled matters from a corner for Italy.
The two sides could not be separated in 120 minutes and the final went all the way to penalties, where England suffered more heartache.
Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford both missed after being brought on as late subs in preparation for penalties, while Bukayo Saka stepped up to take the decisive spot-kick and saw his effort saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The 19-year-old's miss meant Italy, now unbeaten for 34 games, emerged victorious 3-2 on penalties.
