Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has praised England defender Harry Maguire, after the Leicester centre-back helped England secure a spot in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup.
Harry Maguire only made his international debut in 2017 but he has improved dramatically to earn a spot on the plane to Russia.
Fabregas has been a keen admirer of his ability and the way he has gone about his role, writing in his column for the Telegraph: “The most consistent team wins and the most defensively compact teams with the best ideas do well.
“John Stone always comes out with the ball and likes to play, Harry Maguire the same. I always kept an eye on him since that game (Chelsea v Hull). He was really good, confident.
“He came out with the ball and had personality. He can play, he can defend. He’s not slow, he’s good with his head.”
