England: help, Maguire is sinking! – Football

Already in great difficulty since the start of the season, central defender Harry Maguire literally sank on Monday night in the draw between England and Germany (3-3) in the Nations League. Intervened in two of the three goals faced, the Mancunian led the Three Lions.


Maguire and Pope lead England against Germany (3-3).

Harry Maguire’s situation makes me sad because he is a good player. They demand too much of him. Just because they paid £80m for him, he has to be the best in the world every single game. I say no. He is not Rio Ferdinand, but he is a pretty good player.

The words come from the Italian Giorgio Chiellini and the observation remains more relevant than ever: with both the England team and Manchester United, central defender Harry Maguire is under pressure and shipwreck…

Maguire, it’s disastrous

The Englishman no longer succeeds much and now he must also be selected, having lost his starting place and therefore the Manchester captain’s armband. Again on Monday, the former Leicester had a great opportunity to resurface, being a starter in a gala match in the League of Nations against Germany (3-3). But Maguire failed, offering Jamal Musiala a penalty after a clumsy intervention, then naively turning the ball over on the first of Kai Havertz’s two goals.

And inevitably, the critics merge. Maguire is a problem for Southgate. (…) he is out of shape and lacking in confidence, how can he be considered throwing him in England’s first World Cup match against Iran on November 21 in his current form?he asked BBC radio after the match. Former footballer Carlton Palmer was along the same lines: He’s not playing a great game with United, he shouldn’t even be in the mix.. Rather justified reproaches, while the Wembley crowd for their part whistled and jeered, with an inglorious song, at their player on Monday night.

Media supported in selection

It must be said, Maguire has lost what little confidence he had left. This is reflected in his performance on the pitch, but also through the stats. He is simple, combined club and national team, the most expensive defender in history (hired against €87M in 2019) has not won any of the 5 games he has started this season (4 losses and 1 draw). On the contrary, MU won all 5 games in which the 29-year-old defender took the bench. And now you have to go back to April 16 and a win against Norwich (3-2) in the Premier League to find the mark of a victorious and starting Maguire.

Fortunately, the Sheffield native holds weight brackets. Like his trainer, Gareth Southgate. I know everyone will be focused on Harry, but he did great things in those two games.assured the coach of the Three Lions at a press conference. We are a team, we support each other. He showed great strength of character, I am very proud of him forpointed forward and captain Harry Kane, while Luke Shaw spoke of a player extraordinary to describe his partner in the mixed zone. As you may have understood, the English team rises up to save the soldier Harry. It will be enough?

In your opinion, does Maguire deserve to participate in the World Cup? Does the Mancunian really seem bad to you? Do not hesitate to react and debate in the area add a comment
