Newport County produced the biggest shock of the weekend in the FA Cup, with the League Two side beating Leicester City 2-1 in Wales.

Padraig Amond was the match winner for the Exiles, scoring a late penalty not long after Rachid Ghezzai had equalised for the Foxes.

While Newport produced a superb performance on the pitch, the club’s media team didn’t quite hit those heights with the matchday programme, making a rather enormous error in the spelling of Foxes’ defender Christian Fuchs.

Ex-Leicester legend Gary Lineker was quick to highlight the clanger on Twitter…

Newport themselves then replied to the BBC man.

After the game, poor old Lineker was then serenaded by the Newport fans with a ‘Gary, Gary, what’s the score?’ chant…

I doubt he gave a flying Fuchs about that though, to be honest.

    They misspelled Ricardo Pereira as well. ‘Perera’ accidentally also means ‘fuck’ in Portuguese.

    No, it doesn’t. I’ll get my coat.
