Harry Maguire and Mason Greenwood included in England squad for Nations League

Harry Maguire has been included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for next month’s Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark despite his ongoing court case. 

Maguire’s trial began in Greece on Tuesday after the Manchester United captain was arrested due to an altercation with police officers.

He was allowed to leave Greece to return to the UK after the alleged incident last Thursday evening and will now prepare for two England games ahead of the new campaign.

Meanwhile, United sensation Mason Greenwood has received his first senior international call-up after a stellar breakthrough season at Old Trafford.

The 18-year-old netted 17 times in all competitions in the 19/20 season and will hope to emulate his goalscoring form on the international stage for the Three Lions.

Greenwood’s United teammates Dean Henderson and Marcus Rashford are also included in Southgate’s squad.

There are also first senior call-ups for Manchester City starlet Phil Foden and Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Jack Grealish is a notable absentee after playing a crucial role in boyhood club Aston Villa maintaining their Premier League status.

England face Iceland in Reykjavik on Saturday 5 September before coming up against Denmark in Copenhagen three days later.
