Jose Mourinho has lauded, Harry Maguire, for his impact on England’s squad and believes Gareth Southgate should play three at the back against Germany.
Manchester United skipper Maguire made his return from injury in the 1-0 win over the Czech Republic on Tuesday.
And Mourinho thinks Southgate should play a back three in the round of 16 clash against Die Mannschaft.

“I keep saying when you have an option to take 26 players, you have to risk, gamble and take an injured player if the player deserves that,” Mourinho told talkSPORT.
“Maguire is one of those players. He was confident, he was stable, he was intelligent [against the Czech Republic].
“He read the game well and he has a good partnership with Stones.
“Mings is doing a fantastic job, you could feel he was happy to come in for 10 or 15 minutes, he is a team player.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if the next game is against Germany, the way they play with Havertz, Muller and Gnabry, three defenders and two wings backs, I wouldn’t be surprised if England went with three at the back – Stones, Maguire and Mings.”
