FA Website Set To Revamp Man Of The Match Award After Controversial England Winner

England fans voted Joe Hart MOTM against both San Marino and Estonia…

The FA are bidding to revamp the England man of the match vote, after fans twice voted for Joe Hart in the games against San Marino and Estonia, games in which the goalkeeper did very little.

The Daily Mail explains the FA will hold talks with England team sponsors Vauxhall to revamp the fans’ man of the match award derailed by online voters this month.

The FA/Vauxhall view is that a one-off cheeky protest about the San Marino mismatch where 63 per cent of the vote went to Hart was fair enough but not when it was repeated in Tallinn when an 82 per cent majority picked the Manchester City player.

Mail reports explain that Vauxhall are keen to keep the fans centrally involved in the vote, but need to work on a safety procedure that guards against ridiculous choices being made in future.
