Gareth Southgate, the Pizza Hut advert, and the two AshleysAshley Cole and Ashley Young have been warned off repeating the classic pizza advert which featured the stars who missed penalties for England in the 1990s.
Cole and Young have been offered the chance to take part in a remake of the iconic ad for Pizza Hut after their penalty misses in the Euro 2012 quarter-final shootout against Italy.
The original advert featured Gareth Southgate wearing a paper bag over his head while having dinner at the restaurant alongside Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle, who both missed penalties against Germany in the World Cup semi-final in 1990.
But Southgate, who starred in the ad after missing the crucial spot-kick in the semi-final against Germany at Euro '96, told them they would be better off steering clear despite the big money on offer.
"I had a lot of different offers to do so many things and turned them all down, but I thought I should do something to show I can make light of myself," Southgate told Four Four Two magazine.
"I wish I hadn't done it now. People thought I was just cashing in on it."
Southgate admits that he still thinks about the missed kick, which sent Germany into the final against the Czech Republic where they went on to lift the trophy after winning 2-1 in extra time.
"When I missed, my first thought was for my team-mates as it was a great chance for them to win something," the former Aston Villa and Crystal Palace star added.
"It affected me massively afterwards and it still does to this day. Every single day now when I walk down the street it is always mentioned to me.
"Of course it is annoying. When you have played for 20 years and that is the first thing people think about you, it is a bit of a downer. Some people still abuse me about it in the street."
