Harry Maguire is back in England training as he continues his return from injury.
Harry Maguire has resumed training with the England group as he continues to recuperate from an ankle injury sustained while playing for Manchester United.
As the European Championship opener against Croatia on Sunday approaches, the 28-year-fitness old’s has been a hot topic.
After Anwar El Ghazi landed awkwardly on Maguire in United’s Premier League triumph over Aston Villa on May 9, he suffered ankle ligament damage.
The defender sat out the rest of the season, including the Europa League final defeat to Villarreal, and England manager Gareth Southgate stated it would be a “plus” if he could play at the Euros.
Maguire, on the other hand, has been making solid progress and has continued to ease his way back by exercising with the rest of the 26-man squad after working separately from the group in the gym on Wednesday.
The defender stated on Twitter, among emojis of a flexed bicep and the England flag, that it was fantastic to be back out there with the fellas.
During the open phase of the practice at St George’s Park on Thursday, Maguire appeared at ease taking part in training drills with teammates, though his availability versus Croatia remains uncertain.
Jordan Henderson, who had groin surgery in February and only played 45 minutes in Sunday’s 1-0 friendly win over Romania, is also regaining fitness ahead of the tournament.
