Roy Hodgson Cites Jack Colback's 'Ginger Pirlo' Nickname to Twitter's Bemusement

Lee Walker@@Lee_BleacherRUK Managing EditorAugust 28, 2014

Roy Hodgson named four newcomers in his England squad to face Norway in a friendly on September 3 and a Euro 2016 friendly in Switzerland five days later.

The quartet included Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback.

In his press conference, Hodgson referred to Colback's nickname in the Northeast, "The Ginger Pirlo," which immediately began trending in the United Kingdom.

Twitter was not impressed.

We should also note that #HodgsonOut began trending after a squad that also included Calum Chambers, Fabian Delph and Danny Rose was named.
