LONDON: Harry Maguire and the rest of his England national team teammates played on Thursday as the defender continues to recover from an ankle injury.
The British news agency “BA Media” reported that Maguire, 28, was among the most important talking points before the opening match of the England team in Euro 2020 against the Croatian team.
Maguire suffered an ankle ligament damage in the match that his Manchester United team won against Aston Villa on May 9, after Anwar El Ghazi fell on him.
Maguire missed the rest of the season, including his presence as a substitute who did not participate in the European League final that Manchester United lost to Villarreal, and Southgate said that his participation in the euro would be a reward.
But Maguire is making steady progress, having trained individually for the group in the gym on Wednesday, and continued to facilitate his return to training with the rest of his fellow players.
