England hero Harry Maguire ridiculed in Parliament of Ghana during astonishing speech

In mind-blowing fashion, one of England’s standout performers at the World Cup – Harry Maguire – has been ridiculed inside the Parliament of Ghana during crazy viral footage that has surfaced online. Ghana are facing one of the biggest games in their history in Group H on Friday when they plot World Cup revenge on Uruguay following their heartbreaking quarter-final defeat in South Africa in 2010.

Luis Suarez was red-carded after handling the ball off the line before former Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan fired the resulting penalty against the bar and over in the last kick of the game as the South Americans reached the semi-finals.

But surprisingly it wasn’t Ghana’s crunch clash with Uruguay on the lips of Ghanaian politician Isaac Adongo as he delivered a rousing, football-related speech inside parliament.

Adongo, who was standing and addressing the entire room, instead compared Ghana’s vice-president Mahamudu Bawumia to England and Manchester United defender Maguire by claiming he likes to score own goals.

“But there is a player like you in the United Kingdom in England called Maguire that is playing for Manchester United,” Adongo could be heard saying during the clip.

“Our economic Maguire is taking control of the fundamentals of our economy and destroying all of them.”

Maguire has started all three of England’s games at the World Cup following a turbulent season at club level with Manchester United.

The £80million centre-back has only started three matches in the Premier League this season – losing two of them.

But despite his lack of minutes at Old Trafford, Gareth Southgate has stuck by his defender, who has continued to deliver on the big stage.

Maguire has marshalled England to two clean sheets against USA and Wales and was the standout star performer in the goalless draw.

Speaking before the World Cup, Maguire declared it was impossible to totally ignore some of the criticism which has crossed the line.

“I don’t really like feeling sorry for myself but it’s difficult not to dwell sometimes,” he told The Times.

“I think people see footballers as robots who don’t have emotions, but of course we have emotions. We’re disappointed and we’re hurt when we don’t play well.”
