Just over a year after leading the Three Lions to within a penalty shoot-out of European Championship glory, the former defender has come under intense scrutiny due to the drop in results and performances. England were condemned to relegation from the Nations League's top tier with Friday's meek 1-0 loss in Italy and things looked set to get worse as Ilkay Gundogan's penalty and a wondrous Kai Havertz strike silenced Wembley.
The Manchester United centre-back endured another difficult night after making two mistakes as England prepared for the World Cup with a thrilling 3-3 Nations League draw at home to Germany. Maguire's name was greeted with a mixed reception as it was read out before kick-off and, despite a positive chant breaking out in the first-half, he would ultimately have an evening to forget. England would rally, Shaw pulling a goal back before a fine Mason Mount strike and a Harry Kane penalty turned the game around - only for Havertz to pounce on a Nick Pope error to level.
Gareth Southgate has praised his side for "taking individual responsibility" and communicating as a team after their 3-3 draw with Germany on Monday, 26 September. The England manager said the players "have been fantastic the past few days" in facing up to the challenges of the UEFA Nations League, adding that it is much-needed experience to prepare for the pressures of the World Cup. Mr Southgate said the players displayed "character and quality" in their play, and also nodded to the support shown by the supporters in the crowd.
