Ooops! TV reporter says the World Cup third-place game will be played at the Mia Khalifa stadium

A Mexican TV reporter covering the 2022 World Cup has become viral after a funny slip of the tongue involving influencer and former adult entertainer Mia Khalifa.

Roberto Lopez Olvera from Grupo Imagen was on live TV talking about the third-place game between Croatia and Morocco when he mistakenly rebranded the Khalifa International Stadium – the venue of the match – as the Mia Khalifa Stadium.

People watching the broadcasting reacted online and laughed, of course.

Hours later, Olvera acknowledged his mistake on Twitter, posting a clip of the embarrassing moment. 

"When tiredness plays against me," he wrote jokingly.
