England under-21 manager Gareth Southgate was left fuming when an administrative error saw the wrong Manchester United youngster called up to his squad.
Michael Keane, a highly rated young centre-half, was selected for the squad to face Wales in midweek.
However, he was pulled from the squad just an hour before kick-off, and it has subsequently emerged that his twin brother, William, had been brought into the squad instead by error.
In quotes reported by the Metro, Southgate said:
We had an admin error so Michael wasn’t registered. I don’t know exactly why yet, it’s not one I’ve seen before.
I feel really bad for the lad as he’s a key part of what we’re doing.
Remarkably, it's not even the first gaffe of this kind in recent weeks. In February, Russia boss Fabio Capello was left red-faced after a player called Andrey Semenov was called up—and a different player of the same name was picked.
