Fans online have reacted to Harry Maguire’s performance for England in their 1-1 draw against North Macedonia.
Maguire, who started against Malta last Friday, was handed another starting spot in England’s final Euro 2024 qualifier on Monday.
But he failed to impress fans as the Three Lions ended their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with a whimper.
The Manchester United defender was fortunate not to concede a penalty in the first-half.
He misplaced his pass before clumsily taking down Elif Elmas in the box. The match referee didn’t point to the spot but did later when Rico Lewis committed an apparent foul.
Enis Bardhi gave North Macedonia a shock lead when he followed up his missed penalty. England levelled following Jani Atanasov’s own-goal just before the hour mark.
This is 100% a penalty.
Harry Maguire was his typical clumsy self and tripped himself up in to the attacker.
How it’s not given is beyond me.

But it was Maguire’s outing at the back that sent social media wild as fans made their feelings clear.
One X user wrote: “Harry Maguire needs to get in the bin.”
A second tweeted: “Jacob Harry Maguire, the most expensive defender of all-time. €87.1 million.”
A third added: “This giveaway-foul combo possibly the most Harry Maguire moment that ever Harry Maguired.”
A fourth said: “Harry Maguire never fails to entertain… How is this man a professional footballer?”
Another sarcastically commented: “Really glad Ezri Konsa missed over a week of Unai Emery’s training to sit in the cold and watch Harry Maguire play 180 minutes for England.”
