McGinn’s Impresses Fletcher With Scotland Display

Darren Fletcher, the Stoke City midfielder was highly impressed with the performance displayed by John McGinn, the Aston Villa star against Belgium and Tottenham Hotspur. McGinn was featured in Scotland during the friendly international match played at Hampden Park against Belgium last Friday. The midfielder showed his best performance despite the fault at the opening goal for the Red Devils.

The Stoke midfielder and Scotland international Fletcher did follow the match and the ex Manchester United was quite impressed to see the midfielder playing against Belgium and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dembele who won  £55,000 every week as his remuneration. Fletcher also appreciated the performance shown by the midfielder McGinn and said that he was not only powerful but competed well with Dembele. As per Fletcher, McGinn is Europe’s one of the best midfielder.

McGinn became a part of villa from the Hibernian eh Scottish club during the summer transfer window for £2.75 million. In addition, the 23 year old has played brilliantly for Villa during the season’s opening weeks. Fletcher in addition to playing as a central midfielder is also known for his performance as a right winger. He has spent close to 20 years with Manchester United and made 342 appearances at the club. He made his debut with Scotland in the year 2003.

Fletcher has played at Chelsea against Eden Hazard several times during his tenure in the Premier League not only with Stoke but also with Manchester United and West Brom previously. He gave a suggestion to central defenders of Scotland to go over to offer help when Hazard is on the flank with the ball. However, he admitted that it’s tougher as Hazard is a man with lethal left foot. Without a game plan, you can do much in football as per Fletcher. It is important to cover from the inside.
