The rest of his teammates are currently in Middlesbrough taking part in a pre-tournament warm-up camp at Rockliffe Park.

Last night England beat Austria 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium where they will return to face Romania on Sunday.

"Hi everyone, excited to finally be on TikTok," said Maguire.

"Looking forward to sharing some content

"Looking forward to meeting up with the England team and hopefully we can bring back that trophy."

Although Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has admitted 'it's going to be tight for the first game.'
