It was a wholly disappointing night for England and Arsenal legend Wright summed it up in his post-match analysis post-match.

"There's no way Foden should be leaving the pitch today... you've got Sancho on the bench - 15 goals and 20 assists a season - and he doesn't even get on," Wright said on ITV.

"We need to create... I'm embarrassed for us today."

Fans were inclined to agree with Wright's assessment, including Manchester City supporter and former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher.
