The England national team had to settle for sharing the points after drawing 1-1 at Ukraine’s headquarters. The goal that broke into England’s goal viral because of the moment”marking” Harry Maguire towards his own teammates.
England, who before this match had a clean sweep of wins in four matches, dropped their first point in the Euro 2024 qualifying match.
In that match, the Three Lions even had to fall behind through Oleksandr Zinchenko’s goal for Ukraine in the 26th minute before Kyle Walker hit back four minutes before half time.
Ukraine’s goal against England itself became viral because of the moment involved Harry Maguire in his own penalty box. At that moment, Maguire lost the opposing player he had to guard and instead held his partner’s body.
Harry Maguire’s moment with Marc Guehi was widely discussed. There are quite a few who think the situation could have been different if Maguire had closed the space in front of the goal, instead of “blocking” Guehi from behind.
“Maguire what are you doing anyway?” tweeted a netizen on X, which used to be called Twitter.
“He is the reason England will never win the European Cup or play in the World Cup final,” said another account curtly.
“Marking elite level,” joked another netizen.
After the match, Harry Maguire posting a statement on social media. But the Manchester United defender did not discuss the moment it went viral with Guehi.
“Of course we want more, but this is still an important point in our efforts to qualify. Thank you for your support, see you on Tuesday,” he wrote.
In the middle of next week, England will face Scotland in a friendly international match.
