Roy Keane highlights a problem with Harry Maguire’s game that is ‘always there

Roy Keane feels Harry Maguire will always be something of a concern for England because he is ‘slow on the turn’ and ‘will get caught in behind.’

Maguire started England’s first game of the World Cup and largely played well in a 6-2 win over Iran in Qatar, however, he was caught out for the first goal the Three Lions conceded as Mehdi Taremi out-manoeuvred him to fire past Jordan Pickford.

The Manchester United centre-back was substituted soon after, suffering with blurred vision which had seemingly started before the goal, but it was still a concerning moment for England’s defence

It’s always there isn’t it, with Maguire. As well as he’s done at tournaments for England,’ Keane said on ITV.

‘He knows it, his teammates know it and more importantly the opposition will know it, it’s not going to go away that issue. Slow on the turn, he will get caught in behind.’

Gary Neville feels that despite the rousing win over Iran, the error will be bothering Maguire and he will be desperate to get through England’s clash with USA on Friday with a clean sheet, to build confidence after a difficult season so far for club and country.

‘When players come off the pitch, even when you’ve won 6-2, if you’re a defender and you’ve been at fault for a goal, you’ll have that little bug in your mind,’ said Neville.

‘I think Harry will just want to get through this game tonight with John Stones, clean sheet and make sure they don’t have a mistake in them.’
