Fans of Southampton have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Saints confirmed that James Ward-Prowse returned to the club from international duty early.
Having been called up by Gareth Southgate for England’s World Cup qualifying fixtures against San Marino, Albania and Poland last month, Ward-Prowse went on to make his fifth and sixth appearances for the national team, scoring the first goal of his international career in the 5-0 rout of San Marino.
However, prior to England’s 2-1 victory over Poland on Wednesday evening, Southampton confirmed in a statement on their club website that the midfielder had returned to St. Mary’s sooner than expected as a fitness precaution.
And, after Saints shared this news on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be furious at the prospect of the club captain potentially being ruled out of Southampton’s upcoming fixture against Burnley.
Do you think Ward-Prowse will be fit for the Burnley game?
So, what exactly did these Southampton fans have to say in reaction to the news regarding James Ward-Prowse?
“Hope he’s ok, would be gutted if he misses a minute for us after not missing any so far.”
“He better not be injured I stg.”
“We gotta hope he’s not injured otherwise we’ve got a real problem.”
“If he’s injured imma cry.”
“Player who is never injured gets injured by England.”
“Idk tbh. He better not be injured though. He can keep his streak of consecutive games.”
