Surely it's the precise other way around.Dan was hyped for the match I get it. It will be his last WC . But I wasn't keen on him berating North if I'm honest I dont mind him berating junior players but not a senior player like North who for the most part is as senior as Dan is in that squad . Keep it for the dressing room to tell a senior
North's mistake should not have come from a senior player, and a senior player should be mentally strong enough to cope with a telling off.
A junior player who is still finding their feet, especially a debutant, could have the confidence knocked out of them by a public dressing down, and you risk them never really recovering. It's also more "acceptable" for a junior to get carried away with themselves and make a tactical mistake like that.
