The Tottenham Hotspur defender is being slammed on social media.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth is a lucky boy.

Despite not featuring heavily for Spurs this season, the 21-year-old, who has 20 minutes of Premier League action this season, was called up to the latest Argentina squad.

The South Americans edged out Brazil 1-0 on Friday courtesy of a goal from Lionel Messi on his international return.

But if not for a missed penalty from Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus, it may not have been a victory at all.

That’s because the Tottenham centre-back was complicit in the penalty being awarded after trying a suicidal drag-back in his box, before being dispossessed.

Foyth, an £8 million signing in 2017 [The Daily Mail], has directly conceded silly penalties for the North Londoners, especially last season.

Here’s how Tottenham fans reacted to his error on Friday:

Foyth is young but, even still, these are mistakes that he should not be making at this level, especially in a game against Brazil.

There might be a reason as to why Mauricio Pochettino has given him less than half-an-hour of Premier League action this season and it’s probably because he’s unpredictable, as proven once again. The promise and talent is there, but the maturity and sensibility evidently isn’t just yet.
