Twitter reacts to Manchester United's Jesse Lingard getting an England call up

Manchester United 3

We'll be honest, we're waiting for our call up from Roy any minute now.

If you're a footballer, we can only imagine that the first time you get called up to represent your international team is pretty good feeling.

However, over the years, there have been a few players who have been called up to teams like England who many don't think quite deserved a place in the team.

And that seems to be the consensus when the news broke that Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard was called up to Roy Hodgson's England team to replace Michael Carrick.

Now, Lingard has managed to find some pretty good form for Man United this season, but we're not entirely sure he's done enough to earn a place in the senior squad, considering he's only played four times in the Premier League this season.

And there were plenty of discussion on Twitter about whether or not he really deserved a place in the England team, here are some of the best tweets about Lingard.
