Harry Maguire has ‘achieved MORE’ for England than icons John Terry & Rio Ferdinand ahead of World Cup 2022 says O’Hara

HARRY MAGUIRE has “achieved MORE” for England than either John Terry or Rio Ferdinand.

That’s according to Jamie O’Hara, who is backing the Manchester United captain to make a lasting impact at the Qatar World Cup.

Maguire, 29, has started just five games for United this season, leading to questions over his inclusion in Gareth Southgate’s squad.

But not only is the centre-back part of the 26-man side, he is also set to start in Monday’s group opener against Iran.

Southgate sees Maguire as a key part of his Three Lions set-up and has no plans to cut him out yet.

The decision for Maguire to get in ahead of players including Fikayo Tomori and Marc Guehi is not a popular one with fans.

But pundit O’Hara believes the ex-Leicester man is more than deserving of his place in England’s starting XI.

Indeed, the former Tottenham man reckons Maguire has contributed more towards the national team than either Chelsea legend Terry or Utd icon Ferdinand, both regarded as two of the greatest defenders ever.

Speaking on TalkSport, fellow pundit Jason Cundy asked O’Hara: “When was the last time we [England] had a top, top, top class centre-half?”

O’Hara responded: “They got to the European final and the World Cup semi-final.


“Harry Maguire has been in the team of the tournament in the World Cup and the Euros.”

Cundy then said: “But you can’t put him in the same bracket as John Terry and Rio Ferdinand.”

O’Hara then retorted: “No you can’t at club level, but why can’t you at international level? He has achieved more than what they’ve done.

“Harry Maguire has achieved more than Rio Ferdinand and John Terry at international level.”
