Man Utd loanee will be hoping Ten Hag wasn’t watching his international howler in 2-1 loss

The international break is all but over, however, one Manchester United player has ended it with an awful display for his country.

On Tuesday the Manchester United headlines were grabbed by Kobbie Mainoo who made his full England debut against Belgium.

The 18-year-old midfield maestro was in unstoppable form as he made Youri Tielemans and even United-linked Amadou Onana look amateur at times.

Aside from Mainoo, Diogo Dalot was on the losing end for Portugal although will have his head held high for his personal display.

Scott McTominay also lost with Scotland while the two Danish players were victorious. Another player to feature was Facundo Pellistri who put in a howler for Uruguay during a 2-1 loss to the Ivory Coast.

Here’s how Pellistri fared…

How Facundo Pellistri fared for Uruguay

Pellistri had a nightmare outing for Uruguay on Tuesday, as he was hooked at half-time with a FotMob rating of just 5.9. With a horrific performance which justified the rating, as he failed to do anything positive.

The 22-year-old had zero shots and only completed 13 passes while completing zero dribbles, with 21 touches in the half.


He was dispossessed and failed to win a tackle or a duel in what ultimately was a nothing performance in which he showed zero reason for Erik ten Hag to reconsider his stance on the winger.

He will be hoping that the Dutch manager wasn’t watching the game, with his Old Trafford career on the line over the next few weeks.

This will be annoying for Pellistri after his impressive outing last time against Bolivia and he’ll now be hoping to find some form upon returning to action with Granada.

Ten Hag won’t be blown away by Pellistri’s Granada form, his Manchester United career could be over

Being loaned out in January, Pellistri had to get it right and while putting in some decent displays, it’s unlikely decent will be enough to impress Ten Hag.

A goal and an assist against Barcelona were part of his best display, but he hasn’t really capitalised on this momentum since.

At United, Pellistri will be behind Alejandro Garnacho, Amad Diallo, Antony and potentially an arriving Michael Olise in the pecking order. There is simply no space for them all.

With one likely needing to go, right now it looks like being the Uruaguayn who goes and his display on Tuesday won’t be doing much to change that.
