Phil Jones has finally seen his Panini sticker picture – and loves it.
Manchester United star Jones became a figure of fun on Twitter after the pictures were taken as fans thought the picture was a bit, well, flattering.
From gurning footballer to poster boy pin-up.
When he was asked about it, Jones said he hadn’t seen it so one of the journos got the picture up on his phone to show him. “That’s a belter that is,” smiled Jones. “It’s good that. I’ll take that though.”
When one of the journos joked his missus had sent it in, Jones added: “She definitely thinks I look like that.
“I’m surprised she’s not mentioned that. She’d usually have bantered me about that by now.”
Jones’ 2018 World Cup adventure will get underway on Monday night, when England take on Group G rivals Tunisia.
The Three Lions will then go head to head with Panama the following Sunday, before concluding things in a crunch match with group favourites Belgium.
