Manchester United fans were absolutely furious with Phil Jones following his performance vs Belgium in England’s third place playoff clash.
The two nations faced off for the second time in this summer’s edition of the World Cup with the Three Lions keen on revenge and being crowned the third best team in the world.
Gareth Southgate’s men were defeated by Croatia in the semi-final while the international Red Devils lost to France setting up the pretty useless tie.
Jones was given the rare opportunity to impress for his nation and it’s fair to say he didn’t do too well, being at fault for Eden Hazard’s goal and Belgium’s second that all but killed the game.
After conceding first, England rose to the occasion in the second half and just as they were edging towards a potential equaliser, conceded from the Chelsea man’s good effort.
Manchester United really should not be lining up with Phil Jones or Chris Smalling in their team next season. Either bring in an experienced defender, or trust Victor Lindelöf and Eric Bailly. Need to finally move on.

Phil Jones assisting another goal for the opposition. How does he manage to survive at United?

Really hope Phil Jones leaves United this summer. He simply isn’t good enough for United or England. If we could use him in a deal for Harry Maguire then that would be great..

Phil Jones should not be anywhere near our starting XI next season!!!

Chris Smalling was left at home and Phil Jones has played one game and not been that impressive.
Not deemed good enough to start for England but they’re thought to be good enough to play for United.

Jones had played Hazard onside and preceded to fail to keep up with him as he slotted past Jordan Pickford who had so far kept his side in the game.
The defender embarrassed himself as well as his club on the international stage with even several neutrals struggling to understand how he possibly features for United.
