ESPN deleted a tweet today after apparently mistaking Willian for Chelsea team-mate Loic Remy.
Wanting to wish Chelsea's Brazilian midfielder a happy birthday, the ESPN UK Twitter account, which is followed by over 800,000 people, sent out the following message.
"He had a great game for Chelsea yesterday, and today Willian can celebrate his 27th birthday. Happy birthday! #CFC"
Only, there was a major mistake with the tweet as it was accompanied by a picture of Chelsea striker Loic Remy.
Others on Twitter quickly pointed out the error - with more than one tweeting along the lines of "You only had one job".
The tweet was quickly removed when the error was spotted.
