England were absolutely shite against Slovenia in a 0-0 draw on Tuesday night and towards the end of the game tempers started to flare.
Our kid Jesse Lingard managed to get himself a booking after going full Scrappy Doo on a Slovenia player and a video has revealed the reason he saw a red mist.
One of the Slovenia players took it upon themselves to put their hand round Marcus Rashford‘s throat. Jesse saw it and was having none of it so he jumped in to help – good lad Jesse. As they say, it’s not the size of the dog in the fight it’s the size of the fight in the dog.
Slovenia player grabbed Rashford by the neck and Lingaard was sticking up for his mate. That's why that kicked off. Fair play. pic.twitter.com/6r3OoUYXnQ

Say what you want about Lingard but I know his heart is in the right place and that’s why I’ve got a soft spot for him.
You can add ‘loves a scrap to help his mates’ as another reason why Lingard deserves more support as well!
