Harry Maguire: England defender trains alone as preparations for Germany begin

Harry Maguire trained away from the main group on Thursday morning as England began preparing for their Euro 2020 round-of-16 clash with Germany

The Manchester United skipper played the whole game as England beat the Czech Republic 1-0 on Tuesday to top Group D.

It was Maguire’s first appearance of the European Championship after he recovered from the ankle ligament damage he suffered towards the end of the 2020-21 season.

He spent Thursday training indoors on an individual programme as a group of 23 players took to the pitch at St George’s Park.

The other absentees were Chelsea duo Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount, who continue to self-isolate.
