England fans hated Ross Barkley’s performance against Kosovo

Premiership Picks

Ross Barkley played 83 minutes of England’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo on Tuesday night.

Indeed, the Chelsea midfielder was again named in Gareth Southgate’s starting XI for the Group A clash, which ended in a 5-3 win for the Three Lions.

England were poor defensively at St Mary’s but offered plenty down the other end with Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho all on the scoresheet.

According to WhoScored, Barkley had a pass success rate of 89%, whilst he managed three successful dribbles and had one shot before being replaced by Mason Mount.

It was the Chelsea midfielder’s pass that landed Michael Keane in all sorts of bother early on, though, which allowed Kosovo to take the lead inside the first minute.

And there were a number of occasions where he made the wrong decision.

It would be fair to say that a lot of England fans were upset with the 25-year-old’s performance in the international affair, and a selection of their Twitter reaction can be seen below:
