Harry Maguire

A former England player has spoken about Maguire’s place in the England team. The player in question thinks Maguire shouldn’t lose his starting spot following the recent mistake. 

Former England and Liverpool right back Glen Johnson has spoken about Maguire. Speaking to SafeBettingSites, Johnson said;

“Everyone makes mistakes and gives away some penalties but he's under the microscope at the moment. It was a stupid penalty, it's certainly avoidable, so it is a little bit worrying. 

I don't think you can say to someone that they can't start because they gave away a penalty, but it's the manner of the penalty that's going to rub people up the wrong way most.”
