Man Utd star Lingard donates training gear to junior club

Lingard has been earning plenty of praise for his strong performances for Manchester United in recent months and his fine displays have earned him a starting spot for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Harry Kane shot to the top of the goalscorer's chart with a hat-trick while John Stones grabbed two and Jesse Lingard scored the goal of the game.

It's far from the most controversial goal celebration to have rocked the World Cup so far - that honour goes to the Swiss-Kosovan players who flipped the bird, as it were, at their Serbian rivals - but older viewers of England's 6-1 thrashing of Panama on Sunday may nonetheless have been baffled by Jesse Lingard's post-goal dance moves.

Sandor Kocsis, who finished with 11 goals in that year's tournament, had a hat trick and Ferenc Puskas and Peter Pelotas had two goals for eventual runners-up Hungary, who defeated West Germany 8-3 in their next game before incredibly losing 3-2 in the rematch in the final.

He said: "I get absolutely indignant about the suggestion that players when they play for England don't really care because it's not anything like my experience. I worked a lot with Jesse", said Scholes in the video below. "You're right. He was a late developer and the coaches had to realise that".

Scholes' comments about Lingard and Mourinho's relationship hasn't gone down too well with United fans, who have been slammed the former midfielder in the replies section.

"It took me ages. When things aren't going well at Manchester United he's the first man taken off, but with England I think Gareth really believes in him and gives him confidence". "Possibly, the manager for England has a little bit more belief in him than his club manager".

"If [Marcus] Rashford had played as well for United as Lingard did this season maybe he would be getting more England starts than him, but he didn't".

"It's insane to see the clips back home, because here, we don't really know what's going on", he said.
