Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to Nejc Pecnik scoring against England

Sheffield Wednesday 2

Former Sheffield Wednesday player Nejc Pecnik scored against England for Slovenia, much to the surprise of Owls fans.

England were given a fright in their Euro 2016 qualifier, with almost-forgotten Sheffield Wednesday old boy Nejc Pecnik scoring a late equaliser against them.

Fortunately for the Three Lions there was still time for Wayne Rooney to score a winner to make it 3-2, but the memories of Owls fans had been stirred by the Slovenian's goal.

Pecnik played for Wednesday in 2012, and had a debut to forget, missing a penalty. He played only one season for the club, making 14 appearances, and failing to score.

He went onto sign with Red Star Belgrade, and can now be found playing in the Japanese league for JEF United Chiba.

At 29-years-old, the midfielder remains a fixture in the Slovenian national team, who now face a tough task to qualify for the European championships, already nine points behind England, they are battling for second place and then a shot at the play-offs.

Pecnik appears to be one of those players who enjoys a better international career than his club record suggests; and certainly he showed little at Wednesday to indicate years later he'd be netting a potentially important goal against England.

Here is a look at how Owls fans reacted to his goal, it's fair to say there was a lot of disbelief...
