Football fans are mocking Lee Dixon's take on Marcus Rashford's screamer
Lee Dixon played professional football at a high level
He won stuff; played for his country. The chances are, despite the fact he retired over 15 years ago, he's still better than you at football.
Given the career he had, he's also pretty well qualified to get paid to talk about it. ITV Sport certainly seem to think so, as he was once again on their punditry team to discuss England's final World Cup warm-up game on home soil on Thursday night.
Costa Rica were the opponents at Leeds' Elland Road Stadium, and fell behind to a brilliant long-range effort from Manchester United's Marcus Rashford early in the first half.
While most people focused on the quality of Rashford's dipping shot, Dixon took a slightly different approach - deciding to criticise the Costa Rican goalkeeper, Keylor Navas.
According to Dixon, Rashford's shot could and should have been saved by Navas, describing the Real Madrid star as "the most overrated goalkeeper in the world".
Again, here is Rashford's "saveable" shot...

It's safe to say plenty of people weren't in agreement with Dixon.
Lee Dixon says Keylor Navas should have saved that from Rashford. Don’t think Lev Yashin standing on Zoff’s shoulders would have got a finger on it.

Did Lee Dixon really just say he should save that? What an absolute breed

Lee Dixon..’Navas most overrated keeper in the world!’ 🤔 Don’t win 3 champions league medals with a poor keeper! Give Rashford some credit. Took it very early, great strike! 👏🏼

Lee Dixon calls Keylor Navas, a goalkeeper who won the Champions League 12 days ago, overrated.

Sorry Lee Dixon. Keylor Navas can’t both be Real Madrid first choice goalkeeper for 4 seasons and be overrated. They picked him and mercilessly ended Iker Casillas’ career there who was a club legend.

Game of opinions, and all that.
Navas, as many tweets have since pointed out, recently won his third consecutive Champions League title as Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev. Not bad going, really.
