Nick Pope: From non-league to potential England WCup starter

Nick Pope took to Twitter after Burnley's goalkeeper was selected by England for the first time last week.

"Congratulations to my namesake, the `other' Nick Pope, who just got his first England football call-up," said the man who once ran the British government's UFO project. "Stand by for more confusion as I get media questions about defending against penalties, while he gets ones about the Pentagon's UFO program!"

One thing's for sure, Nick Pope the soccer player has been out of this world this season.
