Harry Maguire was unable to play in the Europa League final for Man United due to an ankle ligament injury.


Manchester United captain Harry Maguire is progressing in his rehabilitation work ahead of the European Championships.

Maguire suffered an ankle ligament injury against Aston Villa last month which has forced him to be sidelined for several weeks now, crucially ruling the centre-back out of contention for United's Europa League final clash against Villarreal in Gdansk.

Despite Maguire still carrying that injury, Gareth Southgate included the 28-year-old in his official 26-man England squad for Euro 2020 and the United man has now joined up with the Three Lions alongside teammates Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford.

According to Sky Sports, Maguire is now progressing in his recovery with England and has made his return to the gym, working on strengthening the injured ankle, having not played football for over three weeks.

However, there are still doubts over whether Maguire will be fit enough to feature in England's opening game of the tournament against Croatia on Sunday, June 13, although it's hoped he could make a return to contribute in the group stage at some point.

While this is positive news and there have been no setbacks for Maguire so far, Southgate may have to promote a player from his standby list if Maguire is deemed unable to play any part this summer, although that seems highly unlikely.

“I knew for me to start the Europa League final was very unlikely but I hoped to play some part. Ahead of the final, I could still not run on the ankle. But it is now improving and getting better, so I am just looking forward to the Euros," Maguire said.
