Speaking on Sky Sports, Wayne Rooney said: “I like Harry Maguire, I know him personally. He hasn’t been in his best form this season as a lot of players haven’t.
“He goes away from Manchester United and plays for England and looks like a world-class centre-back. Again, a lot of it is confidence.
“The players need to feel winning again and winning consistently to get that confidence back. If they do that, I think Harry can be a big part of it.”
Maguire was included in the latest England squad by head coach Gareth Southgate despite massively struggling for consistency at Man United.
The 29-year-old remains a key part of the Three Lions’ setup and looks like his Old Trafford performances won’t affect his chances of going to the World Cup.
