Three Manchester United players named in Euro 2020 team of the quarter-finals – Manchester Evening News

Manchester United trio Jadon Sancho, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire have been named in the WhoScored team of the Euro 2020 quarter-finals.

The last eight threw up some belting games of football as Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, Czech Republic, England and Ukraine battled it out for a place in the last four at Wembley next week.

David De Gea was an unused substitute as Spain managed to progress via a penalty shootout, but three of United’s four other performers in the tournament were key to England’s 4-0 win over Ukraine and have been named in the team of the round as a result.

Sancho, who agreed to join the Red Devils this week in a £73 million deal from Borussia Dortmund, earned his first start after just six minutes of action prior to the game, performing admirably on the right wing.

Who has been the best Manchester United player at Euro 2020 so far? Let us know in the comments.

The 21-year-old was excellent at linking with Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Kyle Walker, and earned himself a spot on the wing in the team of the round with a 7.52 rating.

Further down the pitch, Shaw and Maguire had more of a say on the final result during England’s win. Both kept yet another clean sheet as England maintained their record of having not conceded a goal in the tournament, while Shaw supplied two assists on the night.

The full-back’s first came via a free-kick that met the head of Maguire for his fourth international goal. Just three minutes later he crossed for Kane to head into the net for his second of the night and third of the tournament.

Shaw’s superb performance earned him a 8.17 rating, while Maguire was given a 7.89 rating for his showing.

WhoScored team of the quarter-finals:Sommer; Coufal, Maguire, Vermaelen, Shaw; Sancho, Delaney, Shaqiri, Insigne; Kane, Dolberg.
