Manchester United fans react to poor David de Gea performance

Manchester United Football Club do have one of the best goalkeepers in the business at the moment, with David de Gea progressing year-on-year into a top shot-stopper. This tournament will be his first as Spain’s number one, as he takes over the reigns from Iker Casillas.

However, despite breaking a clean sheet record last time out, the Spaniard had a shocking game in Spain’s final group game against Croatia. He got beaten at his near post twice in the game, and if there is a weak spot in his game, it has to be that.

Perhaps we’re being harsh on him because expect so much – maybe the first one wasn’t all his fault. The second one though, he certainly should have done better despite the deflection.

At the end of the day, even the best in the business have bad days at the office. It has been a fair while since we’ve seen a mistake from David de Gea, and two in one night from him is certainly a rarity.
