England fans all express concern over the same player despite advantage vs Senegal


Gareth Southgate ponders England World Cup 2022 squad selection

Supporters of the England national team have taken to social media in numbers on Sunday evening, to express concern over the efforts of a key member of the nation’s backline.

Gareth Southgate’s men, of course, are currently locked in action.

After comfortably topping a World Cup group featuring all of Wales, Iran and the United States of America, the Three Lions were tasked with a Last-16 showdown with African giants Senegal.

England, for obvious reasons, headed into proceedings viewed as widespread favourites to book a spot in the competition’s quarter-finals, where world champions France lie in wait.

And, despite not particularly impressing when it comes to performance thus far, as things stand, a spot in the final eight is precisely what Southgate and co. are headed towards.

This comes owing to a solitary Jordan Henderson strike, netted against the run of play late in the first-half.

As alluded to above, though, despite their current advantage when it comes to scoreline, many of an England persuasion remain concerned, owing largely to the display of one member of the country’s first-choice XI.

Taking to social media in their absolute droves on Sunday night, the Three Lions faithful have taken aim at Harry Maguire, amid what has proven a less-than-impressive individual showing to date.

In turn, though he has enjoyed a solid World Cup on the whole, the prospect of Manchester United stopper Maguire facing off against the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele in the next round has set alarm bells ringing late this evening:
