FANS are convinced Kyle Walker was booked TWICE – but the defender stayed as England beat Italy with ten players.
Stunned viewers wrote: “You couldn’t make it up” after believing Walker had been booked in the 53rd and 71st minutes.
Betting sites and even the BBC briefly recorded the right-back receiving two cautions as the Euro 2024 qualifier heated up.
But it seems the first could have been announced in error – as fans were stunned when he stayed on the field after a later warning for wasting time.
And in the end it was Luke Shaw who saw twice a yellow card in 54 SECONDS – keeping the Three Lions 2-1 in Napoli.
One viewer wrote: “Kyle Walker has received two yellow cards and is still on the LMFAO pitch. You can’t make up for that shit.”
Another demanded to see the referee’s notebook and a third said: “Wait what!! So who got booked earlier then?”
Many added comments such as, “I’m as confused as hell!”
In all, England were awarded five yellow cards – including two to Shaw.
That meant a nerve-racking final for Gareth Southgate’s men.

They looked good at 2-0 thanks to Declan Rice’s rebound finish and Harry Kane’s penalty that sent the skipper past Wayne Rooney to set an English record 54 goals.
But Mateo Retegui rammed home a fine response in the 54th minute.
And as the Azzurri increased the pressure, England sent bookings skyrocketing – ultimately causing confusion among fans.
