Burnley striker Vydra: Maguire is England's weak link

Burnley and Czech Republic striker Matej Vydra feels Leicester City defender Harry Maguire is England's weak link.

Maguire was sent off after four minutes for bringing down Johann Berg Gudmundsson at Turf Moor on Saturday although Brendan Rodgers' side still won 2-1.

Vydra, hoping to face England at Wembley tomorrow night, said: “For example Maguire... we talked about him at Burnley before we played against Leicester.

"In some moments, it seems he doesn't know what's happening behind him - that's why he got a red card after a few minutes in the match against Burnley.

"With England, Kane is top, Rashford as well - and Sterling is in a great form. The attack is very strong. And the defence.. . I don't say it's not strong as well - but it's not as strong as the attack."
