Danny Mills has slammed Aston Villa centre-back Tyrone Mings as ‘terrible’ when discussing him as an option for England at the World Cup.
The ex-Three Lions defender was discussing potential names who could play in the position at the tournament this winter.
England drew 3-3 with Germany on Monday evening in their final League A Group 3 game, a result that saw them finish bottom of the standings, four points behind Hansi Flick’s side.
Harry Maguire, who has continued his poor form for Manchester United last season into this one, made several mistakes leading to Germany scoring twice.
The 29-year-old has been a key player for the Three Lions since Gareth Southgate’s appointment, featuring in their last two major tournaments, and is expected to be selected for the World Cup in Qatar.
England supporters have expressed their displeasure of Maguire’s involvement in Southgate’s latest squad and last night’s performance won’t help his cause.
Mings wasn’t part of the Three Lions latest squad and lost the Villa captaincy to John McGinn at the beginning of the season.
With Maguire’s poor form and John Stones suffering an injury against Germany on Monday, Mings was suggested as an option for England, something Mills wasn’t a fan of.
When asked on talkSPORT why Mings shouldn’t be an option for the Three Lions, Mills said: “Because he’s terrible. I think Maguire is better on the ball.”
Mings has been capped 17 times for the Three Lions, scoring twice. He joined Villa from Bournemouth on a permanent deal in July 2019 after a successful loan spell in the West Midlands in January of that year until the end of the campaign.
