You head to skysports.com to find out who we're talking about in England's campaign to be European Champions. So we thought we would take a look at who you are talking about as well.
Question: How do you get everyone on Twitter to talk about you? Answer: Get your national team boss to compare you to Pele!
That's right Wayne Rooney tops today's buzz meter, and by some distance after Roy Hodgson told the world that his star striker can have the same impact as the Brazilian legend on an international tournament.
An impressive 32.8 per cent of the chat about the England squad has mentioned the Manchester United man, as he prepares to start against Ukraine tonight, but not everyone shares the England gaffer's thought it seems.
Wayne Rooney is definitely England's Pele, expect for all the ways in which he is not, of which there are many.
Unsurprisingly then Mr Hodgson is second in the buzz list with 13.7 per cent having featured heavily in the Rooney/Pele tweets, but he's got bigger fish to fry with Ukraine on the horizon and a selection dilemma after third-placed Theo Walcott's heroics on Friday night against Sweden.
The Arsenal winger completes the top three with a mixture of 'ahh isn't he sweet' type tweets and some more football related ones. Here's the former...
Ahh nooo! I'm gonna miss the beautiful Theo Walcott on tv tonight!:( good luck Theo!:D xxx
And the latter, which in truth is a little bit like the former...
Hope England start with Theo Walcott tonight #husbandtobe
Elsewhere, Steven Gerrard, Andy Carroll and Ashley Cole continue to hold their own in the percentage stakes with another solid day, but things are going from bad to worse for Phil Jagielka.
We thought yesterday's rise of 0.01 per cent was a sign of things turning around for the Everton man - not so it seems. But with both centre-back positions occupied could there be a new role for Phil in the team...
I'd rather have phil jagielka on the wing than downing!
Ok, maybe not!
