Don’t worry, this will be the last international football article for a while.
I said yesterday that the game could potentially be a huge occasion from the Manchester City loanee, that this game could more or less make-or-break his career at the City Ground. So how did he get on?
Well the night started off on a bit of a controversial note before a ball had even been kicked. We all want to see players for our club do well when they play for their national team, mainly because it could give them a boost when they pull on the club shirt again. However, I think Forest could have worded this tweet a little better, because there was only really one way that fans could respond to it.
bad luck mate hope you have a day like opening game

It looks as if Muric didn’t quite get the message though, as he came in for a torrent of criticism for England’s equaliser after seven minutes, although it didn’t come as a surprise to these Forest fans.
“Muric caught in no mans land”

And it didn’t get much better for him when England took the lead fifteen minutes later.

And then after the third goal, the story was pretty much written.
It’s really disappointing because I thought he was a good signing. But you don’t then go and sign another keeper on a 4 year contract if you think Muric is going to be good for us. https://t.co/SNqeDnAdBn

I could go on with the responses after the rest of the goals, but we’re not allowed to go over 1,000 words and I think I’ll be pushing that limit a tad if I continued.
Although it would be remiss of me if I didn’t bring up the fact that he made quite an impressive save from a Harry Kane penalty midway through the second half.
