Harry Maguire had a night to forget for England as he was sent off after just 31 minutes into the Three Lions’ defeat to Denmark.
The Manchester United defender, who was removed from the England squad in August for matches last month following an incident in Mykonos, was given his marching orders against the Danes after picking up two yellow cards.
Maguire could have no complaints for his dismissal and it summed up a miserable night for England as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat in this Nations League clash.
Former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen marked his return to Wembley by scoring the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 35th minute after referee Jesus Gil Manzano judged Kyle Walker brought down midfielder Thomas Delaney.
That proved to be the only goal, and the only real chance, in an otherwise quiet game that dented England’s hopes of qualifying for the Nations League finals – and also had full debutant Reece James sent off after the final whistle after appearing to exchange words with match officials.
They now sit third in Group A2 with Belgium, who they beat them on Sunday, top and ahead of them by two points, while Denmark are level with England on seven.
That win over world number one side Belgium on Sunday was heralded as a landmark victory for Gareth Southgate’s side, but they failed to carry the momentum over into this match.
