Defender Harry Maguire says he is ready and available for England’s second Group D Euro 2020 match against D against Scotland on Friday at Wembley.

Tyrone Mings was deployed for Maguire along with John Stones over the weekend 1-0 victory against Croatia.

“I feel good. I’m available again, I’ve been training and I’m looking forward to it,” Maguire said.

The former Hull and Leicester center-forward suffered an injury in the final phase of Manchester United’s Premier League victory against Aston Villa on 9 May.

He missed the end of the Premier League season, United The final defeat of the Europa League against Villarreal and England two pre-match matches, against Austria and Romania.

However, he is still named in Gareth Southgate’s 26-member squad for the European Championships in hopes of recovering in time and playing some role in the tournament.

“Obviously the injury was a club football difficulty,” Maguire said. “Internationally, I wanted to get into this with a lot of games under my belt with full readiness.

“I’ve done a few sessions and I feel like my fitness is there, so I’m available for the match.”

Maguire says he may have to go through a pain hurdle as he regains fitness, but rejects suggestions that he is rushing too fast and says he has joined the Three Lions with the blessing of club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“I’m sure it will bother me for weeks and months. I haven’t had it before, but from talking to players and physicists, I’m sure it will be awful,” he added.

“But as long as it’s stable and the pain is bearable, then I’ll be safe.

“I saw physics every day, and manager Ole was great with me. He wouldn’t hold me back if he thought I was capable of a first, second or third group game.

He said, ‘Go and enjoy, make sure it’s okay, obviously.’ We are in constant contact and the club has been great to me. “

We don’t want an easy ride – Rashford

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford says England should not be afraid of anyone at Euro 2020, despite the prospect of playing World Cup winners in France or defending European champions Portugal in the last 16.

The winners of the English group continue to play the runners-up from Group F, where France and Portugal won the opening matches.

“Playing against Portugal would be a great feeling for everyone on the team, because playing against some of the world’s best players – we want to test ourselves against the best,” the Manchester United striker said.

“We don’t want an easy ride. We want to play against the best teams in the world. We want to do well against them. It will be an amazing experience for the players.”
