Cursed: Liam Gallagher took a swipe at his brother: Reuters

Liam Gallagher has blamed his brother Noel for England’s World Cup loss against Croatia, accusing him of putting a “curse” on all hope of bringing football home.

Gareth Southgate’s squad missed out on a place in Sunday’s final after losing 2-1 in the semi-final last night.

Liam praised the “biblical” team and told fans: “The best thing to come out of this is that we got a proper manger Gareth Southgate you rule.”

He then took a swipe at his brother, and former Oasis band mate, who he recently branded a “soft lad” for telling fans football wasn’t coming home.

Blaming his comments for Croatia’s victory, Liam tweeted: “For all those plastics who said it wasn't coming home they should be ashamed of them selves as you were LGx

“He wasn’t right they wasn’t right they put a curse on it it they should be shot.”

He then voiced his sympathy for those who have paid to see Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds live, before turning on Noel’s wife Sara MacDonald.

“The thought of going to the miserable little f****** gig and having to sit down listen to his bread heads and being I told you so ewwwww (sic),” he tweeted.

“I bet his Mrs is happy f****** turn coat.”

Liam was among a host of famous faces heaping praise on Southgate and his squad with David Baddiel, who teamed up with Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds on football anthem Three Lions, tweeting: “Thanks to the England team, and manager, for giving us this beautiful World Cup run. It’s been a ride.”

The Lightning Seeds posted: “It’s not ‘coming home’ for now...It feels like we were all at a party and the electricity ran out but what a summer and what a World Cup! Well done England and well done England fans!!!”

Former footballer Sir Bobby Charlton, who was a member of England’s winning team in 1966, posted: “I wanted to say how proud I am of what @GarethSouthgate and his team accomplished this @FIFAWorldCup.

“I'm sure the players will be disappointed not to have reached the final, but there is so much to be hopeful about for the future.”
