Hello Man Utd fans
Manchester United stars Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire are ready for England in tonight’s friendly against the Ivory Coast.
Both defenders took part in Three Lions training yesterday and look set for the friendly clash at Wembley.
Maguire was an unused substitute in Saturday’s 2-1 clash with Switzerland but Shaw started and scored the equalizer as England came from behind to win 2-1.
They could return to Old Trafford to find Red Devils team-mate Bruno Fernandez, who has agreed a new deal.
United outlet @UtdPlug say ‘he will be announced in the coming days’.
Portuguese playmaker Fernandez, 27, has been a key man for the Red Devils since joining from Sporting Lisbon in 2020.
Meanwhile, United understudy goalkeeper Dean Henderson admits loan spells at lower league clubs have been key to his development.
The 25-year-old star joined United’s Academy aged 14 and had spells at Stockport, Grimsby, Shrewsbury Town and Sheffield United.
He told the Manchester United website: “If I didn’t [go out on loan]I would probably be in Ligue 1 by now, I had just come out of my first loan.
“I fought for it and I stand by it, the best decision of my life.”
And there was probably some nostalgia among club fans after seeing a United game with Rooney and Ronaldo on the scoresheet on Sunday.
Cristiano Ronaldo Jr and Kai Ronney both scored for their Under-12s against West Brom.
They are the sons of Red Devils legends and former United team-mates Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.
