Eric Bailly scored his first international goal as the Ivory Coast defeated the Central African Republic 4-0. The Ivorian has struggled at Manchester United this season and his latest game for the Red Devils wasn’t great.

The 24-year-old was hooked off after just 19 minutes in our 3-2 win over Newcastle United, although we were down 2-0 when he was substituted.

The Ivorian has been linked (h/t Guardian) with a move away from the Red Devils with Tottenham and Arsenal interested.

The 24-year-old has only started three Premier League games this season, however, some fans were certain of his quality.

The Ivorian isn’t preferred over Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof but some fans wanted him to start more games.
