Shaw backs Maguire
Luke Shaw believes England and Manchester United team-mate Harry Maguire receives more criticism than he has ever seen in football.
Maguire, 29, endured another difficult night for the Three Lions with his mistakes leading to two of Germany’s three goals in the 3-3 draw at Wembley.
His continued selection by Gareth Southgate continues to be a talking point as the World Cup in Qatar edges closer and the centre-back lost his place in the Red Devils' starting XI last month.
In defence of Maguire, Shaw said: "Harry is an amazing player, an amazing character.
"He's taken a lot of stick — probably more than I've ever seen before in football.
"He never hides away, he's always there. You can have people who can hide away and not want to be in the spotlight. He keeps putting himself in the spotlight, it shows the strength and character he's got.
"Everybody knows he's an unbelievable player. At the moment the confidence might not be there because it could feel like the whole world is against him.
"It's tough for him, but us as players and staff are all behind him because he's a very important player. It shows Gareth's trust because he's played in both games [this week] — and look at the Euros, what he's done.
"People need to understand he's a big part of the England team and have to accept it."
Germany draw a step forward
England captain Harry Kane admitted players have felt the pressure of recent poor performances but insisted the draw with Germany was a step forward.
The skipper scored from the penalty spot to put the Three Lions 3-2 up at Wembley having come from two goals behind before Nick Pope's late error ensured the spoils were shared.
While it means England remain winless in six games ahead of their World Cup campaign, the 29-year-old was keen to focus on the positives.
He told Channel 4: "[It was] a lot better. I thought we played really well, we were unfortunate to go 2-0 behind, it was a mistake and then a great goal from the edge of the box.
"We did really well to stay in the game and to get back into it, got into the lead and then unfortunately another error.
"The mentality and fight of the team was shown out there today. We didn’t get the win but we can be proud of what we did and it puts us in a good place ahead of the World Cup."
Kane’s spot-kick, given after a foul on the impressive Jude Bellingham, was his 51st goal for his country.
He added: "It was nice to score, obviously. There always seems to be a few pressure penalties here at Wembley but it was nice to see that one go in and just a shame we couldn’t get the win but we keep going.
"We’ve all been under pressure with recent results. We scored three goals and it puts us in a positive mindset.
"I’m proud of the boys and now we have a busy six weeks or so before we get ready for the World Cup."
Everton confirm Allan departure
Everton have confirmed the permanent departure of Brazilian midfielder Allan to United Arab Emirates club Al Wahda for an undisclosed fee.
Allan, 31, was signed by the Toffees from Napoli in 2020 when Carlo Ancelotti was in charge.
He made 52 Premier League appearances in his first two seasons but has not played a single minute under Frank Lampard this term.
The Merseyside outfit signed midfielders Idrissa Gueye and Amadou Onana over the summer, pushing Allan down in the pecking order.
Rosenior hunts top job
Former Derby interim boss Liam Rosenior has outlined his intentions to secure a managerial role after leaving the Rams following their appointment of Paul Warne.
Rosenior worked in Derby’s coaching staff for three years, taking over as caretaker boss when Wayne Rooney left in June.
With Warne arriving from Rotherham last week, the former right-back was relieved of his duties by the League One outfit.
He said in a statement: "Whilst it is a hugely sad day to leave Derby County, I do so with so much pride and gratitude of being part of this journey with you all at such a critical point in the club’s history.
"I thank David Clowes for entrusting in me the huge responsibility in leading the rebuilding process of the footballing side of the club in this period but, more importantly than that, his role in saving this club from extinction.
"I will never forget the joy, honour and pride in building and leading this team out to start this exciting new era and now is the right time for me to continue the next stage of my career development as a manager in my own right.
"I have no doubts that the club is in safe hands on the pitch with Paul Warne and his staff."
