Harry Maguire: England defender “feels good” ahead of possible Czech return | Football news


Defender Harry Maguire says he is in great shape before his possible return to England on Tuesday night.

The Manchester United captain missed the end of the club’s season with a sprained ankle he sustained in early May – then missed England’s 1-0 win over Croatia in their first match at Euro 2020.

However, he was on the bench for the 0-0 draw against Scotland on Friday and could see his first action of the tournament against the Czech Republic on Tuesday night.

A win in England would put them at the top of the group to stage a round-of-16 game at Wembley – and Maguire is keen to play his part.

“I feel good,” Maguire told the The lion’s den.

“Obviously [after] the ankle injury, it gets stronger, I get more confident.

“The more sessions I do, the more games I play, I’m sure I will gain confidence – and that’s the problem with these types of injuries.

Gary Neville is concerned about the physical levels England have shown against Scotland and criticized the ‘lethargic’ nature of their performance

“I think it’s just about building confidence. Everything’s stable now and I’m available and ready to go.

“Any Euro game is really important to go there and try to win the football game.

“The boys have placed themselves in a great position in the group – four points in two games – although we obviously want to win every football game so we would like to be six.

“But he’s still in a strong position and now it’s another big game against the Czechs.

“This is the one that we are looking forward to and we go there and try to get three points.”
