Joey Barton has taken to Twitter to react to England’s draw with Russia in their Euro 2016 opening tie, blaming the management for the result.

England looked set to be heading to their first opening game win at a European Championships as they led Russia courtesy of Eric Dier’s superb free kick. However, a late header from Vasili Berezutski secured a point from the jaws of defeat.

It was a highly disappointing result for England, who had created numerous chances in the game but failed to convert them.

They came in for stern criticism after the game and Barton was one of those unimpressed, but he aimed his complaints at Roy Hodgson on Twitter

The pressure will now be on England to secure a win against Wales when the two sides meet next week.

They will know that they should have beaten the Russians given the performance they put in during the game.

They will face a tough clash against Chris Coleman’s side though, who will be full of confidence after their opening win over Slovakia on Saturday.
