Newcastle fans fume as Shelvey set to miss out on World Cup

Reports this week suggest Jonjo Shelvey will not go to the World Cup despite his impressive season, and Newcastle fans are bashing the decision on Twitter.

According to the Daily Mail, Jonjo Shelvey is likely to miss out on the England squad this summer.

The Mail report claims there are “concerns about the midfielder’s temperament and disciplinary record” which will prevent him from getting the call-up.

Shelvey has gone from strength to strength this season, and unsurprisingly the report says there is no question about his quality.

The 26 year-old two goals and three assists this season, and has completed over five long balls per game in the Premier League, while also creating an average of 1.4 chances per game.

Understandably, Newcastle fans are furious with the claims his disciplinary record will cause him to miss out, as the ex-Liverpool man has not received a Premier League card in 2018.

Rafael Benitez has done a great job of controlling the fiery midfielder, and it seems absurd to leave him out while taking a player like Jake Livermore, who was of course forced to apologise for stealing a taxi in Barcelona earlier this year.
