Harry Maguire has declared himself fit for England’s second match of Euro 2020 against Scotland.

Maguire has been out of action for over a month now, having last featured in Manchester United’s 3-1 Premier League win over Aston Villa on May 9.

The center-back suffered ankle ligament damage that forced him to miss some crucial fixtures including Man United’s Europa League final against Villarreal and England’s Euro 2020 opener against Croatia.

There were doubts whether he would recover in time for helping the Three Lions qualify for the knockout stages, but those doubts are cleared up now.

“I feel good. I’m back available, I’ve been training and I’m looking forward to it,” said Maguire, as per The Guardian.

“I’ve done a few sessions now and I feel like my fitness is there.

Asked whether he’s fit enough to start against Scotland, Maguire replied: “Yeah, I’m available to the manager for selection.

“I’m here as a player but also as a fan so I fully understand my position in the camp. Whatever happens I want England to win – that’s my main focus.”
