Man Utd captain Maguire delighted to play for England after 'tough' spell

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was delighted after making his return for England against Czech Republic.

The Three Lions finished top of Group D with a win over the Czechs as Maguire made his first appearance since May.

Asked about returning from injury, Maguire told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I've been out of action for six and a half weeks now and it's been tough.

"It's been tough to watch, I don't like watching football matches so to be back on the pitch is something I love doing and to be at Wembley in the first time for me playing in a European Championship, it's a good feeling and it's all the hard work that I've put in that I've been able to play 90 minutes."

On watching England in the Euros as a fan four years ago, he added:"I was in France four years ago so it's been a crazy journey for myself and my family and my friends who were with me in France.

"I'm a passionate England fan and when I've not been playing the first two games I've been kicking and heading every ball in the stands because I want the team to do well whether I'm playing or now."
