Sit back, relax and enjoy the best Phil Jones jokes Twitter had to offer after the England defender’s horror throw-in against Slovenia.
The Manchester United man has attracted a cult following for his array of funny faces and willingness to tackle with his head, but his howler in yesterday’s European Championships qualifier has been somewhat less well received.
England eventually triumphed 3-2 thanks to two screamers from Jack Wilshere, who Jones would later injure himself standing on, and a cool Wayne Rooney finish.
Now, as promised, here is an assortment of Phil Jones jokes. Take it away, Twitter wags!

Wilshere should have celebrated by walking up to the bench and slapping Phil Jones #Eng

Phil Jones has been substituted because he ate 4 crayons at half time. #SLOvENG

Imagine paying £100 for a plane ticket to Slovenia, £80 hotel, £60 for food, £50 on beers only to see Phil Jones on the starting lineup
