Sheffield Wednesday were beaten 3-0 by Plymouth Argyle in their FA Cup first round replay last night and one of the chants sung by the Home Park crowd has caused a stir among many Owls supporters.
The two League One sides played out a goalless draw in the original tie at Hillsborough 10 days ago but the Pilgrims dominated from the start in Devon.
Jordan Garrick bagged a goal in each half while Ryan Hardie scored Plymouth’s second and his 12th of the season nine minutes before the break.
It was a comprehensive display from Ryan Lowe’s side, who are flying at the top of League One at the moment, and it seems the Green Army couldn’t resist having a dig at the visitors late on by comparing them to the San Marino side that England beat 10-0 on Monday night.
"San Marino are better than you.." sing the Plymouth fans.
Blow the whistle, ref.#SWFC🦉

Wednesday, meanwhile, have won just two of their nine games in all competitions – a run that leaves them outside the play-off places and out of the FA Cup.
Last night’s display and their recent poor form must’ve made the 294-mile trip back to Sheffield a bleak one for the travelling Owls fans.
Unsurprisingly, the San Marino chant late on has caused a stir among Wednesday supporters on Twitter as well.
