English midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has endured a torrid month since his £35m switch from Arsenal to Liverpool.
His performances have been massively below-par, for both club and country, and it was more of the same in Thursday night's narrow 1-0 England win over Slovenia.
Gareth Southgate handed the 24-year-old a starting berth on the right flank but was hauled off after another underwhelming display.
England secured their spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia but Southgate wasn't in a celebratory mood after yet another insipid display.
“I think tonight highlighted where we are,” Southgate said. “Of course we'd have liked to have played more fluidly and scored more goals. We played a team who made it really difficult for us to create chances.
“We had some good individual attacking moments without being able to make the final ball or shot. We have had to find a way of winning of being a bit more savvy because we weren't flowing with the ball, but we do have goalscorers.
“Was it the performance or the night we wanted? No, absolutely not. But I was given the job to keep things steady a year ago, the objective was to qualify for the World Cup."
Oxlade-Chamberlain moment goes viral on Twitter
Social media has not been a kind place to the former Southampton academy star since he joined Liverpool on Transfer Deadline Day.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has been pulled up for a number of humiliating moments in a Liverpool shirt already and fans noticed something funny during Thursday night's World Cup qualifier against Slovenia.
About to be subbed off, the commentator noted "It's not been the best month for him" whilst the cameras panned to the £35m star.
Attempting to spit in that very moment, the Ox - to the delight of Many Arsenal fans - got it all wrong and ended up on dribbling on himself.
Absolutely nothing is going right for him at the moment.
It's expected that he'll drop to the bench for England's final World Cup qualifier against Lithuania on Sunday evening.
