England overcame Kosovo in a 4-0 victory on Sunday night, and these England fans were extremely pleased to see an impressive performance from Tyrone Mings in the Three Lions’ starting XI.
Mings, 26, was named in Gareth Southgate’s starting line-up for the clash against Kosovo, his second start for England since a first call-up in September following a promising start to the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.
The centre-back, who permanently signed for Aston Villa in a £26.5m deal following a successful loan spell in their promotion-winning season from the Championship, has been a mainstay in Dean Smith’s defence so far this season – starting all 12 league games. And on the basis of his impressive performance on Sunday, the defender has a strong chance of earning a spot in Southgate’s squad for Euro 2020 this summer.
Having been named in the starting XI, these England fans were certainly delighted to see their man featuring against Kosovo. Here are some of the best reactions following the centre-back’s impressive display in the 4-0 victory.
How is Mings in this squad? Mee & Tarkowski are far better #ENGKOS

Who’s idea was it to play mings he is so 1 footed & he uses his left foot as if it’s a golf club. Just shows Southgate has a grudge against the toon as he won’t pick shelvey or lascelles #EURO2020 #ENGKOS

Think tonight’s effort from Mings puts him out of the starting 11 #ENGKOS
