Marcelo's own goal early in the World Cup opener was a disaster for the host nation as their campaign began, and Twitter being Twitter, someone had to be abused for it.
Unfortunately for @Marcello, whose name is similar but definitely different, that person was him:
To all those hurling abuse at me for scoring an own goal, please re-direct your anger to @12MarceloV. Thank you— Marcello (@Marcello) June 12, 2014
Alternatively, Twitter users could just maybe not abuse anyone? But that would be too easy.
