Lee Nelson (aka comedian Simon Brodkin) attempted to pull a fast one and join England's World Cup squad as they boarded a plane for Miami on Sunday. 

The police were hardly fooled by the man who has also doubled as fiery footballer Jason Bent, and he was taken away at Luton Airport.

Naturally, Tom Cleverley was on the wrong end of humour over the incident.

Previously, Brodkin was in hot water for masquerading somewhat successfully as a Manchester City player.
