Given a starting berth at the World Cup for the first time, Phil Jones was finally able to bring his gifts unto the world when England played Belgium on Thursday evening.
Tasked with man-marking Marouane Fellaini, our Phillip was afforded the perfect opportunity to do what he does best – yelling and leaping, leaping and yelling; gurning and stumbling, stumbling and gurning; lumbering and bellowing, bellowing and lumbering.
In short, Jonesy had a field day. We ask you, is there truly a finer sight in all of football?
Here’s to a job well done.
Jones also made up one-sixth of the finest image captured in Kaliningrad, namely this beautiful little Renaissance-style vignette which Pies have christened “A Night At The Flemish Ballet”…
Astonishingly good. That really does deserves to be hung in a gallery somewhere.
