Mateusz Klich played 63 minutes for Poland in the 3-2 defeat with Portugal on Thursday night and many fans slammed his performance for his country.
After four years in international exile, Klich has been rewarded for his resurgence under new Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa with a recall for Poland.
However, fans were not impressed with him last night after a home defeat in the UEFA Nations League.
Poland took the lead through man of the moment Krzysztof Piatek, but Portugal scored three goals without reply before Klich was replaced by Jakub Blaszczykowski, who gave the home fans hope in the 77th minute.
It wasn’t enough though and fans took to Twitter to criticise Klich.
Here are the best reactions to the Leeds man:
Mateusz Klich and Grzegorz Krychowiak need to play harder, both were invisible today. Hoping one day we'll see the Krychowiak from his Sevilla days.

Biggest issue in the match was the midfielders/wingers not tracking back to defend as a full team. Kurzawa, Klich and Krychowiak all need to do a better job to help out the defense. That was the strongest part of ???????? Euro 2016 team that is missing today.

Leeds fans won’t care about this too much and there were some Poland fans who thought that it was the manager who got things wrong with his tactics. Losing to Portugal is no disgrace either and it’s good experience for the Leeds midfielder. Leeds fans will be far happier that Klich got through the game unscathed and even more pleased that as he picked up a yellow card he won’t be able to play in the next UEFA Nations League match. Leeds need all their players fit for the Championship and will see these international breaks as an unwanted distraction from the task at hand – getting their side back into the Premier League. That task begins again a week on Saturday when Klich will be called on to help his side beat Blackburn. Leeds lost their spot at the top of the table just before the international break, but with Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez returning from injury, they’ll be looking to pick up where they started the season off.
