Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been included in the official Euro 2020 ‘team of the tournament’ after helping England reach their first major international final since 1966.
The 28-year-old was a doubt going into the tournament, having suffered damage to his ankle ligaments early in May. After initial reservations, the defender recovered in time for England’s final group game and was a mainstay in their run to their first European Championship final.
England kept three clean sheets from the five games he featured in but conceded none from open play, with goals conceded against Denmark and Italy both coming from set-pieces. Maguire also scored in the quarter-final for a second consecutive tournament, having done so against Sweden in the 2018 World Cup.
Maguire’s fine performances has seen him rewarded with a place in UEFA’s Team of the Tournament, where he lines up alongside fellow England defender Kyle Walker.
Manchester United’s Luke Shaw was snubbed in the makeshift eleven, despite scoring in the final and providing three assists in the tournament.
