Harry Maguire, and his reputation for questionable defending, found themselves discussed in the most surprising of places: the Ghanaian Parliament.
Isaac Adongo, a member of Parliament, was giving a speech and went into surprising detail over Maguire's rise at Leicester and move to Manchester United, where his reputation has quickly faltered.
He discussed Maguire's poor defence and suggested, much to the delight of his colleagues, that Ghana had its own 'economic Maguire' in their vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia.
"Well Mr. Speaker I am not surprised," began Adongo. "If you are a fan of football. And I'm happy to see Ghana there [at the World Cup], jubilating when Ghana won.
But there was a player in the United Kingdom, in England, called Maguire, who was playing for Manchester United. Harry Maguire, he's a defender.
He was tackling everybody and throwing his body everywhere, like he was the best defender in the world. Manchester United went and bought him.
He became the biggest threat at the centre of Manchester United's defence. Tackling Manchester players and giving assists to opponents.
"Mr. Speaker, when the opponents failed to score, Maguire would score for them. Mr. Speaker, you remember in this country we also have an economic Maguire."

Despite Maguire's reputation, his form for England is generally quite good, and he has certainly played his part in helping Gareth Southgate's side reach a World Cup semi-final, a Euros final, and now the last 16 of the ongoing World Cup in Qatar.
Ghana themselves have an excellent chance of reaching the next round of the tournament, as they face off against Uruguay in tomorrow's final group game, where a draw will more than likely see them through.
