Harry Maguire trains away from England squad ahead of Euro 2020 opener vs Croatia

Harry Maguire trains away from England squad ahead of Euro 2020 opener vs Croatia

England vs Croatia

Euro 2020 is set to get underway later this week, with the first tie to take place on Friday, June 11th.

England will kick off their tournament two days later in a meeting with Croatia at Wembley.

The Three Lions have been drawn in Group D alongside their upcoming opponents, along with Scotland and the Czech Republic.

On paper, it looks as though Croatia, who beat England in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, are the nation’s toughest group stage opponent.

So, earning all three points this weekend would set Gareth Southgate and co. up nicely to go on to top the table.

Harry Maguire working alone

Ahead of their first Euro 2020 game, England’s players have been training at St. George’s Park on Wednesday.

The training session was broadcast live on the country’s social media channels.

During the get-together, which took place outside, though, only 25 of the 26-man squad were present.

The one absentee was Harry Maguire, whom England have since revealed was continuing individual work in the gym:

This of course suggests that it is unlikely we will see Maguire lining out for England’s Euro 2020 opener vs Croatia.

This, in turn, leaves Gareth Southgate with a bit of a selection headache at centre-back.

John Stones looks nailed on to start, but who will partner him with Maguire not yet fully fit?

Tyrone Mings was in from the off in both of England’s most recent friendlies, but his displays were less than impressive. So, could we instead see Ben White, who has replaced Trent Alexander-Arnold in the Three Lions’ 26-man squad, handed just his second-ever international start on Sunday?
