Harry Maguire’s mother has spoken out.
“Maguire’s mother says the abuse her son is receiving is ‘absolutely unacceptable,'” the UK’s Express reported on Thursday. Maguire was stripped of the captaincy after Eric ten Hagg’s appointment and lost his place in the starting lineup. However, he is still being selected for England. He was mocked for an unintentional own goal against Scotland last time out. His mother, Jo Maguire, has spoken out in her son’s defense.”
Mother Jo Maguire said: “It was humiliating as a mother to see my son receive such negative criticism from some fans, media and pundits, mixed with abusive language. I was in the stands as usual but none of it is acceptable. I understand that soccer has its ups and downs, but what my son is getting is more than “soccer”. It’s not good to see the criticism he’s facing. I don’t want to see other parents or players go through the same thing in the future. My son has a huge heart and is able to control his mentality in a way that others probably can’t. I don’t want any abuse,” she said of the over-the-top criticism.
England defeated Scotland 3-1 in a friendly at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland, in the early hours of the 13th. The balance shifted at the end of the first half. It was England who took the lead. In the 32nd minute, after going through Kyle Walker and Phil Foden, Jude Bellingham sent a pass through the opposition defense. The ball was saved by Marcus Rashford and Walker took a bold shot that deflected off Foden, who was looking for an opening in the box, to give England the lead.
The gap widened quickly. In the 35th minute, 토토사이트 Bellingham rattled the opposition with a brilliant move on the edge of the box. Foden picked up a backheel and crossed into the middle. Andy Robertson, who was trying to clear the ball, couldn’t quite get a handle on it and Bellingham, who dug back in, calmly slotted it into the back of the net. The first half ended with England leading 2-0.
England brought on Maguire for the second half. Scotland fought back. In the 22nd minute, Robertson played a pass and then overlapped high into the box himself. John McGinn played it back to Robertson. His bold shot hit Maguire, who headed it into his own net for an own goal. England went on to win 3-1 with Kane adding a second in the dying minutes, but Maguire was hardly immune to criticism after conceding an own goal in stoppage time. Maguire’s mother recently called for the abuse to stop, in an uncharitable tirade against her son.
