Gareth Southgate’s men kick-off Group D against their 2018 World Cup semi-final foes at Wembley on Sunday.

Manchester United captain and former Sheffield United defender Maguire is set to miss that match with an ankle ligament injury sustained at Aston Villa last month.

The 28-year-old is continuing rehab and continued work in the gym on Wednesday as the other 25 members of the Euro 2020 squad trained at St George’s Park.
