England boss Gareth Southgate says Harry Maguire has his “full support” despite the Manchester United captain’s poor display and sending off in the 1-0 Nations League defeat by Denmark.

Maguire was booked early on before being shown a second yellow after 31 minutes when he fouled Kasper Dolberg.

The defender has struggled for form since his arrest in Greece in August.

“He’s having a difficult period and in these periods you learn a lot about yourself,” said Southgate.

“You learn who’s there for you in those difficult times. He’ll come through it, he’ll be a better player and a stronger man for it.

“To go down to 10 men is costly for the team, but we fully back him, we fully support him.”
