The former Hibs centre-back made reference to the David Gray’s late header from Liam Henderson’s corner in the 2016 Scottish Cup final which sealed Hibs a famous 3-2 victory.

Fontaine, who started the match at Hampden Park, tweeted “You know what happens if you don’t defend corners in the dying minutes” shortly after Colombia’s Yerry Mina had taken the last-16 clash with England to extra-time. The centre-back rose above everyone to power a header into the top of the net via the ground.

England would eventually triumph 4-3 on penalties to set up a quarter-final clash with Sweden.

The Englishman left Hibs for Ross County in January where he chose the number 32, although there is no indication that was in reference to the Scottish Cup win.
