Harry Maguire reacts to winning his 50th international cap for England

Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire has described winning his 50th international cap for England in the goalless draw against USA on Friday as a proud moment.

Speaking after the game, Maguire told the BBC of his 50 appearance milestone: “I’m so proud, it means so much to me. It’s a proud moment for myself and my family. It comes down to hard work and believing in yourself.”

He also posted a picture of his shirt from the game on Instagram, calling it an “honour” to have so many “amazing memories” playing for his country.

On England’s performance against the USA, Maguire said to ITV: “We weren’t at our best, but in the end it’s a point, and it puts us in a strong position in the group. 

“World Cup games are never easy and we knew coming into the game they’re a good team, we’ve watched lots of them in previous matches. They play at a good tempo and we worked hard out there. 

“We could’ve maybe nicked it in the end with a couple of chances, if we were a little bit more clinical then we could’ve won the game. There were some positive parts, we’ll take the positive parts, but there are parts that we need to improve on.”
