Harry Maguire proved he is an elite centre-back after dropping a masterclass for England against Denmark at Euro 2020.

The Manchester United man performed heroically at the back on a night that the Three Lions won a major international semi-final.
He was commanding in defence alongside John Stones, winning the majority of his aerial duels.
The six-foot-four defender also showed off his composure on the ball, playing out from the back – picking out passes to the midfield and Harry Kane.
Maguire was defensively sound as he kept the likes of Martin Braithwaite and Yussuf Poulsen relatively quiet.
The 28-year-old wasn’t available for England’s first two matches through injury, but he has shown his worth to the team – becoming an extremely crucial member of Gareth Southgate’s side.
A stunning compilation of his showing against Denmark shows what a game he had. Colossal.

I think this Euros campaign has showed us that Harry Maguire is a better CB than Ruben Dias pic.twitter.com/TTt63nwoH6

One tweeted: “If Maguire was Italian or French, they’d be saying he’s the best defender in the world.”
A second wrote: “The way Maguire has improved his game on the ball is a credit to him.”
A third added: “He’s been so good this tournament and considering he was nursing an injury before and after his call-up, incredible run so far.”
Another commented: “Some performance in an international semi-final.”
Maguire and Co are just one game away from winning Euro 2020.
