Neville: Maguire must play before knockouts
Harry Maguire is continuing his recovery from injury as he looks to feature for England at Euro 2020 and Gary Neville has stated he must play before the knockout stages.
"I think that Maguire, if he can get back to a level in between matches, he will come back in," he told Sky Sports.
"If he's going to come back in, it certainly has to be against Scotland. If it's not against Scotland, then it has to be against the Czech Republic in the last group game.
"You couldn't make Maguire's first game a knockout game."
Ferguson delivers Sancho verdict
Sir Alex Ferguson has issued his verdict on United transfer target Jadon Sancho, speaking to SportBild.

"He has so much potential, he helps the team. That’s why he’ll be valuable to England over the course of the tournament.’"
Pogba 'nibbled' by Germany's Rudiger

United face seven match run which could define their season
It looks like Manchester United will need to do things the hard way if they are to mount a serious Premier League title challenge next season.
The fixtures for the 2021/22 season were released on Wednesday morning and they once again hammered home the enormity of the task on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's hands in the year ahead.
While it is fact United would have had to play every side home and away at some point, they have not been particularly helped by a gruelling set of fixtures early on into their campaign.
United fixtures for new 2021/22 Premier League season confirmed
Manchester United will face fierce rivals Leeds United at Old Trafford in the opening match of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
The previous campaign might only have finished a mere few weeks ago, but the new one is right around the corner, and United now know their fixtures for the 2021/22 Premier League season.
Paul Pogba lifts lid on Antonio Rudiger incident
Paul Pogba has looked to downplay his clash with Antonio Rudiger last night, but insists the Chelsea defender does not need to be further punished after he appeared to almost bite the United star.
“He nibbled a little bit and I felt it so I told the ref. But I am not crying for a yellow or a red card.”
“He has not received any card and I don’t want him suspended because of that situation. We hugged at the end and it’s over.”
United 'close' to Kieran Trippier transfer
The deal taking Kieran Trippier back to the Premier League, and to Manchester United specifically, is close to be done, reports are claiming.
Football Insider state that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very keen on Trippier's addition and that the 30-year-old has begun house hunting in Manchester — despite United and Atletico Madrid currently being apart on the price.
United 'willing to pay' £17m-a-year for Cristiano Ronaldo transfer
It was inevitable after his brace last night, wasn't it?
Gazzetta dello Sport comment on Cristiano Ronaldo's future and state that while PSG are his preferred option, United are the side who have supposedly made him an offer.
The Italian newspaper suggest United are willing to pay Ronaldo £17m-a-year to bring him back to Old Trafford and add that Paul Pogba could move to Juventus as part of a swap-deal.
The MEN understands Ronaldo is a player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admires — as a former teammate of his — but that a return to Old Trafford for the 36-year-old is highly unlikely this summer.
