Euro 2020: In a major boost to England, defender Harry Maguire has resumed training prior to their EURO 2020 opener against Croatia on Sunday.
The Manchester United defender hasn’t been able to kick the ball since he got hurt in the Aston Villa match. Despite his injury, he managed to sneak in into Gareth Southgate’s final 26 man squad and it seems the wait has paid off finally.
Given Harry Maguire passes the fitness test ahead of the first match he should be the first name on the team sheet alongside Harry Kane but Southgate is unlikely to risk his most valued defender and is poised to leave him out of the starting lineup.
Harry Maguire is back 🙌
