Jokers laugh at Carabao Cup farce as Charlton are drawn twice

At the behest of the tournament's new sponsor, the draw for the EFL Carabao Cup first round took place in Bangkok, Thailand on Friday afternoon.

All 48 teams from Leagues One and Two were pulled from the pot, as well as 22 of the 24 Championship sides.

However, the draw itself didn't go overly smoothly, with viewers complaining about a lack of sound during the online live stream.

And it wasn't long before people noticed another, altogether more significant gaffe when the results of the completed draw were posted.

Indeed, Charlton fans were left wondering just how they'd managed to find themselves pitted against not just Exeter City in the first round, but Cheltenham Town too.

Thankfully, Charlton's double shift proved to be just a glitch in the graphics, but that didn't stop Twitter users from having their fun.

In all honesty, we've seen less auspicious starts.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
