Everyone has seen it. I mean, how could you miss it?
Bayern Munich youngster Joshua Zirkzee had beat a defender, beat the goalkeeper, and appeared to be on his way to tapping a much needed goal into the back of the net…but Zirkzee got overconfident and Perr Schuurs hustled back and kicked the ball away just before Zirkzee put it in the net.

Zirkzee’s play was arrogant and downright dopey, but it was no reason to harass the kid online. Zirkzee stripped down his Instagram account to nothing because of “fan” harassment.
What he did was a foolish mistake that only harmed his own career — during a friendly. Like always, there is absolutely no reason to fire up your social media account (or accounts) and target a player who did something ridiculous.
Criticize him all you want — that is completely fair. Doubt he has the maturity to “make it” — that’s okay as well...but don’t head over to his social media accounts and badger him.
Just let the kid be...he knows he messed up.
