What has been said?

“I’m available to the manager for selection,” the 28-year-old said.

“I’ve done a few sessions now and feel like my fitness is there. Obviously the injury was a setback club-football-wise. Internationally, I wanted to come into this with a lot of games under my belt with full fitness, but I feel good. I don’t feel like there is any risk.”

Asked if he ever felt his Euros were under threat, Maguire said: “I’m pretty sure if you spoke to Gareth, he must have been willing to make the selection. But I always told him I felt I would always have a part to play in the camp, whether it’s on the pitch or off the pitch.

“For sure, I always felt within myself that I would be fit at some part of the group stage. I didn’t know when. We are going well, we are on the right path. Every day I get more confidence and it gets stronger.

“I knew the extent of the injury as soon as I got injured, I knew it was going to be pretty serious because it didn’t come from impact or contact, I knew it was a twist straight away so there would be some sort of ligament damage in there.

“Obviously, you fear the worst. I feared missing the Europa League final and then obviously the Euros as well. I managed to make this squad but I wasn’t able to make the Europa League final, but I’m here now and ready to go.”

What injury has Maguire been struggling with?

Maguire, 28, suffered an ankle ligament injury against Aston Villa after a collision with Anwar el Ghazi. He missed United’s last five games of the season, including the Europa League final defeat on penalties to Villarreal.

He was nevertheless selected in Gareth Southgate’s 26-man England squad and arrived at the camp last Thursday.

He did not feature in either of the friendlies against Austria and Romania and was one of three players not included in the match-day squad against Croatia, along with Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho.

What other recent team news has there been with England?

On Tuesday, goalkeeper Dean Henderson withdrew from England’s Euro 2020 squad due to a hip injury.

The Manchester United goalkeeper has been replaced by Sheffield United’s No 1 Aaron Ramsdale in Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad. Ramsdale, 23, has no senior England caps but was part of Southgate’s provisional 33-man squad for the tournament.

Jack Grealish also did not take part in England’s training session on Tuesday, instead working “away from the group”.
