Plenty of West Ham United fans are outraged by Aidy Boothroyd’s decision to completely snub Grady Diangana from his England U21s squad to face Kosovo U21s on Monday night.
Phil Foden scored a brace as the Young Lions came out as 2-0 victors, but that didn’t stop unhappy Hammers supporters taking to Twitter to vent their frustration.
Here are just some of the reactions to the team selection…

Twitter: @RockyWhu As if diangana doesn’t get in that side manager is a joker (@Herts53087449)
Twitter: Why call up diangana if you’re not gonna even put him on the bench? Waste of time. (@StevehJack)
Twitter: @RockyWhu Terrible manager. Shouldn’t still be in the job. (@WestHamRambles)
Why Call up Diangana if you not going to play him?
Boothroyd is an awful manager hands do… https://t.co/9dS0UYk4cZ (@RockyWhu)
Read West Ham’s verdict
It’s a shame to see Diangana snubbed, but when you look at the array of talent ahead of him in the pecking order it’s slightly more understandable.
Considering he’s playing regular first-team football at West Brom, it’s surprising to see him missing out on a place in the squad altogether, mind.
Being selected is a huge step altogether though, and hopefully he can continue to push on in the Championship and earn another call-up next time around.
No, but the bench at least.
Boothroyd was right.
