If there's one sure fire way of insulting a Scotsman, Welshman or Irishman it's by calling him English, it's like calling a Canadian "American," and UEFA fell into that very trap when they tweeted about the Englishman Aaron Ramsey.
Ramsey is having a very good Euros and whilst it's countryman Gareth Bale who is stealing all the headlines the Arsenal midfielder is arguably having the better tournament having scored one goal and made two assists in Wales three group games.
That is seemingly good news for Dutch legend Ruud Gullit who, according to UEFA's official Twitter account, has Ramsey as his central midfielder in his Euro 2016 Fantasy Football team. Apart from according to UEFA's official account the former Cardiff City youngster is English:
Unsurprisingly the Welsh were not too happy with UEFA:

Come on UEFA you should at least know what country the players come from, even if their country did vote our of the continent in order to move to the African Cup of Nations, that's how it works right?
Anyway fortunately they managed to rectify the issue:
