A dead fish has been thrown onto the pitch during the pulsating clash between England and Croatia in the World Cup semi-final in Moscow.

You certainly don't see this sort of thing everyday- a poor dead fish just laying on the pitch as England and Croatia battle for supremacy.

It is not clear why the fish has been launched onto the pitch, or which set of supporters threw it.

But the deceased catch of-the-day was quickly removed by an official and potentially taken home for a delicious post-match fish supper.

Thankfully no players were put off or slipped on the scaly fish, which could have potentially caused an injury.
