Former Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel terrified fans on TV as he returned to Wembley Stadium when England hosted Slovakia in a World Cup qualifier. The ex Reds star scared many going by online accounts of the event during the national anthem as he previously caused an uproar for the use of a weird hairnet – which acted as a bandage holder – during training ahead of the clash.

As the camera man ran through the array of stars for the game, the Slovakian skipper stared into the lens. Though it was just for seconds, its intensity was scary especially as his face appeared on HD TV.

English fans quickly took to Twitter and other social media sites to tease him.

“Martin Skrtel just stared into my soul,” @adamwilbourn said.

“Anyone else just get terrified when Skrtel sang down the camera,” @davewebb1988 posted adding shocked emojis with bulgy eye.

“Skrtel looked at me like the Night King looked at Bran Stark,” @SmnLlyd5 posted, referencing popular TV series Game of Thrones.

“Okay then so Martin Skrtel just stared into the soul of the nation,” @kieran_gallop added.
The guests started the game very well, following their game plan. Stanislav Lobotka opened scoring for them but the hosts leveled proceedings before half time through Eric Dier. Marcus Rashford added the winner in the second half.

The result means The Three Lions are set to qualify for the World Cup in Russia next year as they are five points clear in Group F. When they play Slovenia at Wembley in October, the race for the next World Cup may be over.

After the game, Dele Alli’s middle finger gesture also circulated online though the player claimed it was aimed at a former teammates Kyle Walker.
