Manchester United star Harry Maguire was voted England’s worst player in yesterday’s UEFA Nations League match against Germany.
The Three Lions took a draw after Harry Kane’s victory and then used a penalty kick after VAR confirmed he had been fouled.
England’s defense felt shaky at times as England boss Gareth Southgate chose to deviate from his usually preferred three.
This meant Maguire was John Stones’ partner in central defense, with Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker in full swing.
BBC Sport He noted that “Southgate would not be satisfied with the gentle concession of Hofmann’s goal.
“The Germans wove some neat passes in the area, but still had too much room to score points, with an effort that Pickford reached but couldn’t help but hold back.”
Given the defensive qualities of midfielder pair Declan Rice and Kelvin Phillips, such gaping gaps were disappointing.
Fans voting on the BBC seem to have blamed the biggest blame for the situation on Maguire, who received an average of just 4.06 points out of 10 for his performance.
Trippier, Stones, and Walker scored 4.80, 5.01, and 5.20, respectively.
Despite a terrifying season at club level, Maguire remained a key member of Southgate after his excellent performance at Euro 2020 last summer.
However, his performances dropped to the point where he was booed by England fans in the final match.
It has come to a point where, as long as he is not playing on defense, Maguire is fighting for both the club and the country.
United’s incoming manager Erik ten Hag has a cut job to restore the 29-year-old’s confidence and make him play in a way that prompted the Red Devils to pay Leicester £ 80m for his services in 2019.
