BBC accidentally show rude image on Mohamed Salah banner in FA Cup final blunder

By Charlie Parker-Turner

Football fans were left in hysterics after the BBC showed a banner of Mohamed Salah during the FA Cup background, but in the background of the poster, two camels appeared to be having sex.

At first glance, the banner appeared to be a simple cartoon of Salah, though the cameras quickly noticed their blunder and quickly cut away. But that didn’t mean that all was forgotten, as many took to Twitter to react to the snippet of camel mating.

One wrote: “Not sure the cameraman noticed the s***ing camels in the background of that Salah banner…” Whilst another added: “TV focused on Salah caricature and didn’t notice the camels having sex in the background.”

Luckily for the cameraman, the drama of the FA Cup final meant that there was not enough time to dwell on their blunder. Liverpool lifted the trophy after beating Chelsea on penalties, with left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas scoring the all-important winner after Alisson Becker saved Mason Mount’s effort.

The game somehow finished goalless after 120 minutes, with players from both sides squandering big chances. Andrew Robertson, Luis Diaz and Marcos Alonso all missing opportunities – with Alisson and Blues shot-stopper Edouard Mendy producing several top saves along the way as well as in the penalty shootout.

Liverpool’s win means that they still have a slim chance of winning a historic quadruple, though whether Manchester City will throw away their three-point lead at the top of the Premier League with two games left remains to be seen. The Reds will also have to overcome Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Though they may be without Mohamed Salah for the match in Paris, the Egyptian hobbled off of the pitch on Saturday after just over half an hour with a groin injury. The winger has scored 22 goals in 34 Premier League appearances so far this season and would be a huge loss for Klopp’s side. Virgil van Dijk was also forced off of the pitch with an injury, as well as Andrew Robertson, though the latter was quite obviously suffering from a cramp.

Speaking after the win, match-winner Tsimikas said: “We gave it absolutely everything. Big congratulations to the boys. We have to celebrate hard. But tomorrow is the next day, we still have a lot to do. We have the games in the Premier League and we have the big final.”

Given that Tsimikas is the unlikeliest of players to score the all-important goal in a cup final, the Greek defender was understandably ecstatic. Speaking about the penalty, he said: “It's very, very special for me. The manager asked me which number I want. I say number seven. He asks me why so far? I say I want number seven. And number seven gave me the opportunity to win the game. I choose the right side and I score. And I am very happy with that. We want to win. Our goal from the start of the season was to go for it, hopefully, at the end we are happy.”
