Harry Maguire issues update after coming off sick during England's clash vs Iran

Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has claimed that he’s okay after he came off unwell during England’s win over Iran in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.

Maguire started the game and impressed at the back for the Three Lions and provided the assist for Bukayo Saka’s goal against Iran.

Sadly, his top performance was cut short when he was forced to leave the pitch midway through the second half because he wasn’t feeling well.

According to David Ornstein, Harry Maguire‘s substitution during England’s victory over Iran resulted from him feeling unwell and was not related to a concussion. The 28-year-old defender should be okay to face the USA on Friday.

Gareth Southgate had to replace him with Tottenham star Eric Dier and England would go on to win the tie 6-2.

England’s next World Cup game will take place on Friday when they face the USA.

Maguire was pleased with this side’s start to the World Cup in Qatar, tweeting: “Great start to the tournament. More to come.
