Fans Can’t Believe Tyrone Mings’ Violent Bodycheck In England Vs Austria

England fans were left shocked by Tyrone Mings' reckless bodycheck in the penalty area in the first half of the Three Lions friendly against Austria.

Sasa Kalajdzic was running into the box for a rare Austria attack when Aston Villa defender Mings appeared to block him with a stiff forearm. Ouch.

It was either nasty or clumsy - and probably should have resulted in a penalty for the visitors. But England fans were equally concerned as it highlighted England's central defensive woes.


With Manchester United captain Harry Maguire currently unfit, there's just three recognised centre-backs in Gareth Southgate's squad for the manager to choose from.

So one of them - Mings - doing something as crazy as clattering into Austrian strikers (risking a red card, penalty and injury) is probably not ideal. Especially with the start of the Euros just weeks away.


The first half ended 0-0 between the two sides. Arguably no thanks to Mings.
