Tottenham Hotspur enjoyed a good evening in the latest round of the FA Cup, as they welcomed Brighton to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
The Lilywhites won 3-1 on the night, but that figure could have easily been more had it not been for missed chances.
In particular, a miss by Steven Bergwijn which was painfully overstruck also ended by revealing a rather embarrassing mistake on one of his tattoos.
The Dutchman who came on during the second half alongside debutant Dejan Kulusevski had a golden chance to put his side 3 goals up.
The ball was passed in his direction after a neat bit of play by Kulusevski, but unfortunately, Bergwijn flashed his strike horribly off target.
Missing a tap-in wasn’t the only embarrassment he’d incur on the night as his reaction to the miss gave the cameras a view of the tattoo on his right thigh.
The ink reads ‘Blood thicker then water’, an obvious typo with the desired expression being – ‘Blood thicker than water’.
Fans quickly took note of the error and many reactions followed.

I will never be able to look at Bergwijn again without thinking about the typo on his tattoo— alex (@TopspurAIex) February 6, 2022
While the Dutchman can be forgiven considering English isn’t his native language, the typo is certainly a glaring error on the tattooist’s part.
Tattoos are known to be a painful affair and it’s safe to assume correcting one involves undertaking strain that should’ve been unnecessary in the first place.
