Here’s how every Manchester United player at UEFA Euro 2020 performed in the Round of 16 stage.

England

Harry Maguire: The Manchester United captain was once again heroic for the Three Lions, scoring a goal just after the restart to make it 2-0 and start a game sealing second half. True to his Slabhead nickname, Maguire came up big on a Luke Shaw free kick to head home the goal. Another brilliant performance and another clean sheet in what has been a great tournament for Maguire.

Jadon Sancho: It isn’t totally *official yet, but with a deal confirmed ahead of Sancho’s first tournament start it feels appropriate to include him. He was electric on the right for England, making several exciting runs, registering a good chance on target, and confirming just how good he is for anyone that had any doubts. It was a good game for Sancho to come in, as England had most of the ball and weren’t particularly threatened. It was a good show from the young winger, and hopefully the first of many to come.

Luke Shaw: Like his centre back for club and country, Shaw has continued to show out at the Euros with another good display. He got another couple of goal involvements under his belt to cement his status as England’s starting left back. Great going forward, on set piece delivery, and in breaking up the opponents attack.

Marcus Rashford: Rashford came on late in this one for England, well after the game was settled and after England were pressing for chances. Didn’t get to see much involvement in the attack, and it seems unlikely he’ll break into the lineup before the tournament ends with both Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane hitting great form.

Spain

David De Gea: It took a penalty shootout for Spain to advance past Switzerland, and a pretty poor penalty shootout at that. Unai Simon made a couple saves starting over David De Gea, and Spain face Italy for a trip to the final on Tuesday.
