Harry Maguire’s international nightmare continued as the Manchester United defender scored an own goal in England’s 3-1 victory against Scotland.

The 30-year-old has had a miserable spell at Old Trafford, where he has fallen down the pecking order. Despite playing just 23 minutes for the Red Devils, Gareth Southgate chose him for the Three Lions roster.

Maguire often performs considerably better for England, but his fortunes did not change on Tuesday (September 12). The veteran defender dove to block Andy Robertson’s attempted cross, but the ball slipped past goalie Aaron Ramsdale.

The former Manchester United captain stared at the ground in bewilderment, and the supporters at Hampden Park were already booing him. He was cool in possession, but his own goal has enabled supporters to continue to criticize him.

England won 3-1 on the night, with to goals from Phil Foden, Jude Bellingham, and Harry Kane. The two countries met in a friendly match to honor 150 years of international football.

Maguire’s own goal, on the other hand, has been a significant talking point, with one supporter not expecting to see his difficulties continue:

“I’m in tears, man, and of course it’s him.”

Another follower commented:

“Maguire scored on his own. You can’t make this stuff up.”
