Ferdinand and Peter Crouch were both critical of Donnarumma’s performance in Paris

Former Liverpool and England striker Peter Crouch remonstrated with Ferdinand’s criticism, stating:  ‘Donnarumma he did really well there [with an earlier chance] because it was just one big long punt forward and he [Raphinha] went through.

‘But on the on the crosses he’s just all over the place. Got it totally wrong. And you know, there should have been a goal itself and he had another one just after that.

‘It was just a bit shaky on the crosses,’ he added.

Donnarumma’s struggles continued in the second half, with him helpless to stop Raphinha’s second strike, but allowing former Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen to have a free header on goal to win the game after refusing to come off his line at a corner.
