Fabio Cannavaro posted a nice tribute to Stevie G... but used a photo of one of his biggest rivals!

Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard look very similar, according to Fabio.

POOR FABIO CANNAVARO. All he wanted to do was salute fellow warrior Steven Gerrard after the Liverpool man’s final appearance at Anfield. It all seemed so simple. Too simple, even.

All he had to do was type a nice message into the Facebook text box, paste in a photo and the job would be done. Then back to driving around Italy in his Ferrari convertible with his supermodel wife.

No doubt his photo started beeping madly once this went up.


There is no need to spare Cannavaro’s feelings here: this is NOT an easy mistake to make. Now let’s enjoy the time Martin O’Neill burned him and Patrick Vieira during the last World Cup.
