Club duped by player's fake Wiki page

Wikipedia is the go-to website for most people looking to get a basic overview of topics or people. However, due to the nature of the website -- it can be edited by anyone at any time -- there is at times  incorrect information floating around the various pages.

That was something Lithuanian side FK Panevezys discovered this week after announcing the acquisition of "Angolan international and star player" Barkley Miguel-Panzo before writing about his exploits.

The club were led to believe, by his Wikipedia page, that he had starred for Championship side Queens Park Rangers, bagging an impressive 45 goals between 2010 and 2012.

But all that information was false, with the player's career including spells with non-league Woking in England, French second-tier US Orleans and former Swedish outfit Syrianska.

It certainly evokes memories of Southampton's legendary signing. Then again, even Ali Dia might have done a job in the Lithuanian second division.
