HARRY MAGUIRE has trolled Matej Vydra on Twitter after the Czech Republic forward claimed he was England's weak link in the build-up to yesterday's game.
The 26-year-old was singled out by the Burnley man as the man to target, but the Leicester centre-back had the last laugh after helping the Three Lions to a 5-0 win.
Job done ✅Professional performance from the lads. Congrats to @sterling7 on the hat trick 🔥🏴🦁 #ThreeLions pic.twitter.com/UXiOT8gpP9

Prior to the clash at Wembley, Vydra, 26, said: "(England's) attack is very strong. Defence, I don't say it's not strong as well, but it's not as strong as the attack.
"For example Maguire. We talked about him at Burnley before we played against Leicester.
"In some moments, it seems he doesn't know what's happening behind him – that's why he got a red card after a few minutes in the match against Burnley."
England eased to the three points in the Euro 2020 qualifying opener thanks to a Raheem Sterling hat-trick, a Harry Kane penalty and an own goal from Tomas Kalas.
While Maguire was faultless at the back for Gareth Southgate's side, as he posted a picture of himself sending Vydra flying through the air.
He captioned his tweet by saying: "Job done. Professional performance from the lads.
"Congrats to @sterling7 on the hat trick."
