Gareth Southgate was pleased for Harry Maguire after he scored in England's win against Albania in World Cup qualification.

Maguire missed his country's previous camp in October owing to a calf injury, but he scored on his comeback in Friday's World Cup qualifying win.

Maguire's mentality and desire to face any task that lies ahead were complimented by Southgate.

“It's been a difficult period for him, coming back too early really but he's a player that wants to be out there for his team," the England manager said in his post-match interview with ITV.

“I think he's shown huge responsibility in doing that, so he never ducks that challenge, and it was great to see him scoring tonight again."
