‘I got it wrong on Harry Maguire!’: Sportsmail’s Chris Sutton holds up his hands on England’s centre back, who he said should have been left at HOME… but expects his ‘sternest test’ against Senegal, on WORLD CUP CONFIDENTIAL
England’s game against Senegal will be the toughest test of Harry Maguire’s World Cup campaign so far, according to Sportsmail’s Chris Sutton.
The defender has enjoyed a positive tournament so far after doubts over his place in the side following a poor run of form for club Manchester United that saw him lose his place in the starting XI and fall down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Sutton admitted he was wrong about saying Maguire shouldn’t have been in the England squad, but warned the 29-year-old will have to be on his game to deal with the Senegal attack at the Al Bayt Stadium later today.
