Stay away Jagger!

If there's anything English fans attending the World Cup wanted besides a win, it was for Mick Jagger to keep his infamous curse as far away from Moscow as possible.

The British rock legend has a notorious history of being a jinx on any national team he supports at the World Cup.

But you can't always have what you want and on Wednesday Jagger sat in attendance as England suffered a 2-1 loss against Croatia.

Jagger was especially a beast of burden to national teams during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, tweeting good luck to the English team twice, and the Three Lions would go on to lose both games.

Most notably, he chose to attend the now-historic match between Germany and Brazil and support the Brazilians. Predictably, the curse was in full effect as the Germans let it bleed, driving the score up 7-1 against a Brazilian team which just couldn't get started up.

The curse originates from the 2010 World Cup, when Jagger attended a match between Ghana and the USA as Bill Clinton's guest, choosing to support the doomed American side.

There was no sympathy for the Rolling Stones frontman on Twitter Wednesday, as fans blamed Jagger for derailing the English team's best chances to win the World Cup since 1966 and urging him to 'stay away'.
