Netherland’s centre back Daley Blind has come under fire from fans following a poor defensive display against Turkey on Sunday.
The Manchester United player has found himself at centre-back for both club and country this season but was found wanting during his sides 3-0 defeat to Turkey.
Barcelona’s Arda Turan out-muscled Blind for the games second goal leading Dutch fans to question managers decision to play him in defence.
That's what you get with Daley Blind at centre back! Wow
Netherlands awful defensively versus Turkey

Oğuzhan Özyakup scored the opening goal with a well time finish to put Turkey ahead against his country of birth – and the side he captained at u-21 level.
The 22-year-old midfielder pulled the strings in midfielder and made the most touches for Turkey (49) over the course of the game.
The former Arsenal man has had an impressive start to the season providing four assists and scoring twice.
Turkey will enter the playoffs for Euro 2016 if they manage to secure four points from their remaining two-games against Iceland and the Czech Republic.
