Harry Maguire Declared Fit For England vs Scotland Clash

Harry Maguire says he is fit and available for England's eagerly-anticipated European Championship clash with Scotland.

The 28-year-old center-back's availability for this summer's Euros has been in doubt since sustaining a high ankle sprain on May 9 after Aston Villa's Anwar El Ghazi landed awkwardly on him.

The defender missed the rest of United's season, including sitting out the Europa League final and was not ready for Sunday's Group D win against Croatia.

Maguire has been progressing ahead of schedule though, and last week he returned to full training, putting him in contention for Friday's clash against Scotland.

“I feel good, I've been training now,” the centre-back said.

Asked if he was desperate to start on Friday, he said: “Yeah definitely. Obviously it's a big game. I've done a few sessions now and feel like my fitness is there, so, like I say, I'm available for the game.”

Maguire also says he came to England with Manchester United's blessing, admitting he was “nowhere near ready to run, turn or twist on it” at the Europa League final despite being named on the bench.
