OK, here is the thing about soccer the World Cup: when your national team is playing, everyone is watching. And yes, that includes your girlfriend, as one England fan found out the hard way.
Englishman Carl Wenz was at Arena Amazonia in Manaus, watching England lose its opening match with Italy (2 : 1) on Saturday, when he happened to stumble upon a rather good looking female Brazilian fan. A conversation naturally followed (sources are unclear on the language that was used) and eventually Mr. Wenz asked his new friend for her phone number, which she willingly provided.
The thing is that a TV camera happened to document the transaction, filming Mr. Wenz at the precise moment when he was taking the Brazilian fan’s phone number. To make matters worse, the phone number exchange was promptly posted on Twitter and then retweeted thousands of times.
You can guess the nature of the tweets: “I wonder if his wife back home will mind?”, “Hope his girlfriend/wife’s not watching!”, etc. Thankfully, Mr. Wenz’s friends came to his aid, one of them telling the Harlow Star:
He’s an old fashioned person and this would only happen to someone like him. He’s in a long-term relationship and would consider the interest generated by the picture hilarious.
Unfortunately, we do not know how Mr. Wenz’s partner felt about the incident — she has so far refused to comment — but I do hope that he has prepared a convincing account for her.
