West Ham fans were left reeling when Joe Hart fumbled a shot from Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri, allowing Peter Crouch to a score a goal from close range that looked to have sealed a win for the visitors in the only Premier League clash on Monday night.
Andy Carroll’s late equaliser at the London Stadium spared the goalkeeper’s blushes as England manager Gareth Southgate prepares to make his squad selection for the World Cup.
But the, now perhaps former, international’s error in West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Stoke was much discussed and these were the best of the jokes:

Thoroughly looking forward to Joe Hart doing that at least three times in the World Cup.

Joe Hart plays for England but Peter Crouch doesn't. What an absolute travesty

And that, boys & girls, was how Joe Hart never played for England ever again.

Stoke take the lead after Joe Hart spills the ball from a straightforward shot. Strange, I could have written that sentence before the game started.#WHUSTK

Joe Hart should only be given a spot on the plane to Russia if it's a one-way ticket. pic.twitter.com/9T5KoJE2FB

Joe Hart has now moved down to 62nd choice England goalkeeper for the World Cup, behind Wayne Shaw, John O'Shea, Massimo Taibi and Gabor Kiraly's trackies.

If Joe Hart gets on the plane to Russia it’s the biggest disgrace since Joe Hart was in the latest England squad #WHUSTK

Might make a petition to stop Joe Hart going to Russia.

It seems Joe Hart can’t catch a break at the minute. I mean, he tried, but he dropped it pic.twitter.com/yhZA1qoMBh

🤒 If Joe Hart was stuck in a -10 room full of sneezing, sick people, he still couldn't catch a cold!#WHUSTK
