But some fans pointed out that this was just the latest example of a so-called Mick Jagger “jinx” in which he backed the losing team.

In 2014, Jagger tweeted good luck twice to England for two matches at the World Cup in Brazil; the team ended up losing both games.

He then attended a match between Germany and Brazil in which the Brazilians lost 7-1. Jagger was backing Brazil as his son, who was also there, has a Brazilian mother.

Back in 2010, Jagger attended a World Cup match between Ghana and the U.S. with former president Bill Clinton. America lost that game as well.
