Manchester United defender Phil Jones knows the idea of never giving up on a play. Over the weekend in a game against Arsenal, Jones willingly stuck his face in harm's way to prevent a scoring opportunity for Arsenal's Olivier Giroud. It sure wasn't pretty defending, but no one can deny that it was effective. In a last ditch effort after stumbling, Jones successfully defended a scoring opportunity.
In a sport where you'll occasionally see players grabbing their faces when someone hits their thighs, it was quite a sight to see a defender display this kind of toughness.
Now kids, that's how you use your head!
