Lesson learned! English stars take Gary Neville’s advice on a lack of ‘independent thinking’ as they DELETE the nearly identical post-match tweets to greet three wins out of three
English stars appear to have listened to former defender Gary Neville and scraped out writing nearly identical post-game tweets following their 2-1 win over Poland.
Gareth Southgate’s side took three of three wins at Wembley on Wednesday evening with goals from Harry Kane and Harry Maguire that kept their 100 percent record.
Neville said the England team had no ‘independent thinkers’ and players ‘don’t sound authentic’ after sharing nearly identical messages on social media after their 2-0 win over Albania last Sunday.

Gary Neville was left frustrated on similar posts over the weekend for showing a lack of authenticity
But after Maguire’s 85th-minute winner after Jakub Moder took advantage of a John Stones error to level up Poland, English players took Neville’s advice with their posts on Twitter much more varied.
The English skipper Kane tweeted: ‘The perfect start to the World Cup qualifying. Lots of positives as a group, but we know we need to keep improving. ‘
While defender Kyle Walker wrote: ‘Happy to round out a successful 10 day camp with @ England with 3 points.
“Always an honor to play for my country, and excited to return maximum points.
“Now is the time to focus on club football for the rest of the season and achieve our goals.”
West Ham’s Declan Rice was awarded the man of the match for its display in the heart of midfield, and the 22-year-old focused his message on that, posting, “An honor to win this award again! 3 wins out of 3 of the boys! Let’s keep pushing. ‘
English stars seem to have listened to Marcel and have scrapped almost identical tweets
Mason Mount, who started his eighth game in a row for England, tweeted: ‘Ledge camp with the boys, 3 wins! Back to Chels, ‘while Jesse Lingard, who was recalled by Southgate this month, said:’ Great to be back at @ England this week and even better to win all three games. Well done guys. ‘
Defender Kieran Trippier added: “Congratulations to the guys tonight for getting away with all three points. Proud as always the connection with the boys during this international period, ‘with match winner Maguire who wrote:’ What a feeling ‘.
Neville was not satisfied with the similarity of the messages that players posted on social media last weekend and called it ‘a real shame’.
Neville complained of a lack of ‘individual thinkers’ after social media posts last Sunday
‘I read some tweets from the English players last night. Are any of the guys posting themselves? They don’t sound authentic, ‘he tweeted.
It’s a real shame that they don’t manage their personal bond with the fans and media. #independentethinkers. ‘
Lingard wrote on Sunday: ‘Job done! We are going again on Wednesday! With Mount, who got the main second goal, he posted: ‘Job done, looking forward to Wednesday!’
Neville was not happy with the similarity of the messages that players posted on Twitter
In another series of tweets that drew closer together, Man United’s Maguire wrote: ‘Two wins from two. Now focus on Wednesday. ‘
For his post-game tweet, Man City’s Phil Foden added: ‘Two of two !! I can’t wait for Wednesday. ‘
Social media teams checking the accounts of top-level professional football players is not uncommon.
