England boss says that Harry Maguire will be ready for their next Euro 2020 clash.

Harry Maguire

, who was out of action since May, when he was injured and missed the remaining of the season due to a high ankle sprain and missed


match against Croatia, will be ready for his side’s next clash against Scotland, according to their head coach Gareth Southgate.

"Harry will be involved tomorrow,"

said Southgate at a news conference on Thursday

. "The decision we've got to make is whether he is ready to start, but we're really pleased with his progress."

"He's trained with the team for four or five days now and had no reaction. Of course each session he's involved with he gets more confident. I think he's on a really good path.

"Of course we want everybody available. It causes difficult decisions, but at the moment, this morning on the training pitch we had 26 players training and that's a great situation for us to be in."

England will face Scotland in their second Euro 2020 clash in Group D, and their captain Harry Kane preferred to talk about Eriksen, who had a serious injury in Denmark’s first Euro 2020 clash.

Kane said:

"It's been difficult. To watch it and see it happen last week was hard to watch. Obviously thankfully Christian is alive and seems to be doing well. I've not had contact personally but my wife has spoken to his wife, from what I understand everything is going in a good way.

"Obviously we've had to try and switch off from it and focus on the games, but of course Christian is in all of our hearts, not just our team but the whole football family.

"It's a reminder of how quickly things can change in life and never to take things for granted. We just want to wish him well, all the best, and I hope to see him soon personally."
