Fans on social media were furious with Wayne Rooney in England’s 2-0 victory over Malta.
Rooney was deployed in a deeper role by new England boss Gareth Southgate at Wembley stadium on Saturday afternoon.
He failed to make a significant impact on the side, making a horrendous tackle and to top it off, was left embarrassed after being nutmegged in the first-half.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.

That's a red card challenge from Rooney. Reckless and high. Can't believe that wasn't even a foul. Ref has no clue.

It’s gone from bad to worse for Rooney and at this point questions are being raised over whether he should be in the side against Slovenia on Tuesday evening.
His disappointing form is nothing new for Man United fans and he hasn’t been able to show anything different for his international showings.
It remains to be seen whether he’ll keep his place in the side, but with others offering more to the team it doesn’t look like he’ll be able to continuously keep his spot in the starting XI without performing.
