People loved James Milner's joke about watching England

He's really flipped this meme on its head.

James Milner is a strange footballer. When he broke through at the age of 17, he was the next big thing. And he has gone on to have a long, successful career at Leeds, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Man City and Liverpool. But for a long time, he was derided as a boring player, who did nothing but work hard and put in the occasional cross.

This sparked a meme and a parody account that painted him as the dullest player in the world. Someone who gets excited to do their ironing on a Saturday night. Of course, there is much more to James Milner. And since he joined Twitter, he has transformed the meme, he's owned the insult.

His latest tweet is a great example, as he embodies the parody to watch England vs Panama.

You can only respect his commitment to banter.
