Immediately after Kiefer Moore got things level in the 74th minute – James was taken off for David Brooks in a change to the set-up.
Despite being one of Wales’ best attacking stars on the day, the Man United star was subbed and displayed his dismay while going to the sideline.
It was rather visible that James was angered with the decision to take him off – even though he created some prominent chances with his impressive work from the left-wing.
United fans have been impressed by that bit of fire shown by Dan during that incident and reacted on Reddit.
JuicyJaKrispy: “Anyone who watched the game was baffled by that sub.”
Guvnay: “Anyone else see how upset Dan James was to come off? Good to see the fight in him. Very happy to see him upset about being pulled off after a difficult season for him.”
Itsssnohman786: “Probably wanted to chase the game and go for the win.. must be used to it from United.”
MasterpieceTrue520: “Welsh fan here, all he wanted to do was pick up the ball and run, we struggled to pass the ball out of our own back third and James was the one player taking matters into his own hands, going on runs, beating defenders and creating chances... He was immense for us today, with 5 minutes left he could have been the difference I’m baffled that he came off.”
Qaveboy: “Love the fight in the guy, doesn't take anything for granted.”
