Harry Maguire trains ahead of England vs Scotland as Jadon Sancho and Ben Chilwell put through paces after shock snubs

HARRY MAGUIRE has stepped up his training for England - but is still likely to miss the Scotland clash on Friday.

The Manchester United captain is recovering from an ankle ligament injury, but was put through his paces today by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate.

Also in the group was Jordan Henderson, as doubts persist over his fitness for the European Championships.

Despite their shock snubs for the Croatia win, Jadon Sancho and Ben Chilwell seemed to be in good spirits.

Both players failed to even make the bench as Raheem Sterling's goal sealed England's first ever victory in a Euros opener at the tenth attempt.

Southgate's troops are now preparing to face Auld Enemy Scotland on Friday.

Steve Clarke's side will head into that crunch clash on the back of a defeat, however.

A brace from Patrik Schick saw the Scots lose their Euro 2020 opener 2-0 to Czech Republic.

The Three Lions are back at Wembley on Friday for a mouth-watering clash against Scotland, with Southgate looking to build on the promising, mature performance.

The gaffer said: "They're very pleased with the performance as much as anything.

"You come into a major tournament, you want to give a good account of yourselves and of course we know that the first objective is qualifying from the group.

"So today you want the win but to not lose is also important in those occasions, but I was really impressed with how they settled quickly into the game with and without the ball.

"Our pressing was good throughout the team and we used the ball with intelligence and with some quality.

"I felt we probably deserved to be ahead before we got the goal, but then we also managed the game well. We didn't really invite too much pressure.

"There's always going to be moments like the long throw at the end but I thought we were pretty controlled throughout."
