New Zealand Newshub TV reporter Lloyd Burr was doused with a beer after England lost to Croatia 2-1 at the World Cup semi-final on June 11.
Burr said, “I’ve got a very angry England fan coming up to me,” when the fan, who turned out to be Australian, tossed a beer into his face, notes The Sydney Morning Herald.
Burr continued with his report: “It’s gone from jubilation to frustration, then anticipation… now it has turned to anger.”
Burr later tweeted about the incident:
First time to Croydon, south London and what an initiation! Apart from the beer in the face (by a drunken Aussie), it was an epic atmosphere to watch a great game. @simonmorrowNZ and I are all good. Thanks for your kind messages.
