“What do you call an Englishman in the World Cup final?"/"The referee.”

A soccer joke is:

Q: What do you call an Englishman in the World Cup final?
A: The referee.


“What do you call an Englishman in the final of Euro 96?” was cited in June 1996.

The nationality and the sporting event can both change, but “the referee” is always the punchline. “What do you call an Englishman in the final of the Embassy World Championship??” was cited in 2000. “What do you call a German in the WC final? The referee” was cited on Twitter on July 7, 2010. “What do you call a South African in the #RWC2011 Final? The Referee” was cited on Twitter on October 17, 2011.
