Euro 2020: Harry Maguire takes part in England training as Croatia opener nears

Harry Maguire trained with the rest of the England squad on Thursday as the centre-back continues to step up his recovery from an ankle injury.

The 28-year-old’s fitness has been one of the main talking points as Sunday’s Euro 2020 opener against Croatia comes into focus.

Maguire suffered ankle ligament damage in Manchester United’s Premier League win at Aston Villa on 9 May after Anwar El Ghazi awkwardly landed on him.

But Maguire has been making steady progress and, having worked away from the group in the gym on Wednesday, continued to ease his way back by training with the rest of the 26-man squad.

Maguire looked comfortable taking part in training drills with team-mates during the open section of the session at St George’s Park on Thursday, although his availability for Croatia still looks questionable.
