Gareth Southgate has named his final 26-man England squad for Euro 2020, with several Manchester United and Manchester City players selected.
A provisional 33-man squad was named last week ahead of this summer’s tournament as Southgate picked extra players to fill training while his United,City and Chelsea contingent were busy playing European finals.
Maguire has made the squad even though an ankle ligament injury he suffered towards the end of the season kept him out for the final four games of the Premier League campaign and saw him resigned to the bench in the Europa League final defeat.
Two United players who were named in the provisional squad have not been made the final squad, with Jesse Lingard and Mason Greenwood both making way.
Lingard has been cut despite his excellent form on loan at West Ham in the second half of the season, while Greenwood has pulled out of the squad in order to fully recover from an underlying injury he has struggled with since March.
In a statement, United said: “Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020/21 Premier League and Europa League schedules.

“But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training.”
The four City players that were named in the provisional squad – John Stones, Kyle Walker, Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling – have all been picked for the tournament.
The Three Lions will get their European Championship campaign underway on Sunday, June 13, as they take on Croatia. Next up they will face Scotland on Friday, June 18, before ending the group stage against the Czech Republic on Tuesday, June 22.
