John Terry congratulates Harry Maguire on England record and takes pop at Roy Keane

Harry Maguire led England to a 10-0 victory over San Marino as he scored the opener in a one-sided win.

The goal was Maguire’s seventh goal for England and in doing so, he became the highest scoring Three Lions centre-back of all time, breaking a joint tally held by John Terry and Jack Charlton.

Maguire’s achievement was praised by Terry on social media after the game, with the ex-Chelsea defender sticking up for him.

He also took a not so subtle dig at his critics, with Roy Keane vocal in digging Maguire out in recent weeks.

Keane had belittled Maguire’s celebration against Albania in the recent game.

Maguire’s celebration was a lot more low-key after this goal against San Marino.

It’s right that the £80 million defender did his job well at both ends, and should be praised for it, somewhat, but the standard of opposition has been very poor.

The big problem Maguire has faced, partly of his own creating, is that his club form for Manchester United has been poor, and his leadership skills have also come into question.

Both of these are huge issues, and a couple of goals for England are nice, but they don’t solve either.

If Maguire drops another disaster-class for United against Watford at the weekend, then he will be back at square one. He needs to use this fortnight away with England to come back stronger for his club and start afresh.
