Georginio Wijnaldum Hilariously Catches Tweeting Fan On Same Flight
One unsure fan was left red-faced in this brilliant social media story involving Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and an EasyJet flight.
Llantwit Major AFC fan Ben Dudley was in one of those awkward situations you may have experienced in your life.
You see someone famous and question: is it really them? You can't be sure. Ben took to Twitter.
I'm 99% sure Georginio Wijnaldum is on my EasyJet flight. Am I going to embarrass myself by saying Feyenoord with an awkward thumbs up on the way out? Almost certainly.- Official TNS hatred account (@Ben_Dudley010) January 25, 2019
You can imagine him questioning himself. 99% is sure enough - you'd hope - but there's always that 1% chance it's not him. Luckily, the eagle-eyed Dutchman caught Ben in the Tweeting act; his response on Instagram was pure class.

Gini is watching you, Ben.
And we can only imagine Ben ran through the airport to greet the Premier League star in true Love Actually fashion. The pair eventually met to conclude the greatest footballing love story since Wenger and Mourinho's Arsenal and Chelsea days.

But Ben is not done with the public transport just yet. No offence to Bangor, but we doubt one of the Premier League's top defenders will be on his way to the Welsh coast in this winter weather during a weekend off, sorry.
About to catch the train to Bangor. If Van Dijk is in the same carriage I'm saying nothing.- Official TNS hatred account (@Ben_Dudley010) January 25, 2019
