Harry Maguire appeared to be bear-hugged in the box, although no spot kick was forthcoming – with VAR opting not to intervene.

The incident prompted a protest from Southgate, who waved his arms in frustration.

Fans also fumed online, with one writing: “Stone wall penalty.”

A second tweeted: “A clear pen all day long.”

Another added: “Maguire is literally being rugby tackled.”

While a fourth fumed: “England already robbed of a penalty 3 minutes in.”
