    A photoshopped tweet made to look like it was sent by him has gone viral after England's 2-0 victory.

    Harry Maguire made good on his promise to Sweden. #ENGSWE #WorldCup

    People are sharing it like it's true.

    This man has been plotting this day for 2 years πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚#ENGSWE

    However, the tweet says it was made in 2016 but Maguire didn't make an account until 2017.

    The photoshopped tweet was first shared minutes after Maguire's goal.

    The person who made the tweet said it was a joke.

    @CraigOHalloran_ Craig I clearly made this up as a joke. Can you credit sources please, it's my work you're getting all these retweets off. Cheers.

    And also pointed out that lamps are not flat-packed. πŸ˜‚

    Kinda shocked how many people thought this was real. Lamps, famously, are not flat-packed.
