Football fans were quick to praise some "top tier s***housery" after an AZ Alkmaar supporter was spotted celebrating their Europa Conference League goal in a Millwall shirt.
The Dutch outfit took a shock lead at the London Stadium shortly before half-time in the first leg of the semi-final, Tijjani Reijnders firing past Alphonse Areola at his near post. West Ham had dominated proceedings up until that point with Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio both going close but David Moyes' men were left rueing several missed chances.
And while Alkmaar's supporters celebrated an unwarranted opening goal, fans following the game on BT Sport noticed an unusual shirt not seen in a Premier League away end in almost two decades.

"Hahahahah someone in the Az Alkmaar end wearing a Millwall shirt. Top tier s***housery," commented one fan. "Looool someone wearing a Millwall shirt in the AZ Alkmaar end," laughed a second.
"That AZ Alkmaar fan with the Millwall top on is a legend," posted a third. "Am I losing my mind or is there a guy in a Millwall shirt in the away end?," asked a fourth.
The east London derby between West Ham and Millwall is one of the most notorious rivalries in English football. Strongly affiliated with British hooliganism, the supporters share a deep hatred and bitterness towards one another and the rivalry has been the setting for films such as The Firm and Green Street.
Due to Millwall's Championship status, the sides have not met in English football since February 2012, after West Ham's relegation into the second tier. The match was won 2-1 by the Hammers on their rise back to the Premier League.
Spending the bulk of the current campaign inside the top six, the Lions had hoped to join their east London rivals in the top flight via the play-offs, only to finish eight on a dramatic final day of the season.
