It was just written in the stars, wasn’t it? The moment Gareth Southgate took the decision to drop the forever young Jesse Lingard from his England squad, the writing was on the wall for the Three Lions.
The Manchester United man has been in shocking form for a number of months now, and has produced just one assist in nine appearances across all competitions this season.
It was therefore no surprise to see Southgate leave the 26-year-old out from his latest England squad, but on Friday night against the Czech Republic, that decision rather back-fired somewhat.
The Three Lions slipped to a surprising 2-1 loss in their EURO 2020 qualifying clash, and United fans subsequently flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the matter.

Many Red Devils supporters insisted the result wasn’t a coincidence, and that they knew that was exactly what was going to happen.
Some fans of the Manchester side had a comical reaction to the whole situation, and one fan in particular remarked “no Lingard, no party”.
Who should be Manchester United’s left-back?
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
