England boss Gareth Southgate has praised Harry Maguire’s ability to play out of the back and also defend well ahead of England’s World Cup clash against USA.
Southgate said: “We wanted to build our team on the capability of playing out from the back, Harry and John Stones have provided that incredible platform to build on.
“That is the start point. They defend well, we have a good spirit among the defenders, they fight for each other and have determination.
“They take pride in keeping clean sheets – although they need to liven up on that at the moment. It is great for Harry to get his 50th cap and it is well deserved.”
