Defender Harry Maguire entered into the English bad books after his red card against Denmark in the UEFA Nations League on Wednesday night.

Maguire who had a nightmare start this season with Manchester United was sent off after half an hour after receiving a second yellow for a bookable offence; the move seeing him join a very unique club in the process.

The 27-year-old is only the third English player after Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard to be sent off at Wembley.

England was to finish the game with nine men after Chelsea defender Reece James also receiving his marching orders late on for dissent. The red card for James saw him become the first England international to be sent off on his debut.

Former Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot shortly after Maguire’s sending off, as England dropped to the third position in Nations League group A2 and face a battle to qualify for the competition’s finals.
