It would have been at Wembley, but it's an away match

Harry Maguire, the Manchester United central defender, is to be given the captain's armband when England travel to Prague to play the Czech Republic in their European Championship Group A qualifying match tomorrow, Friday 11 October.

For Maguire, it is the proudest moment of his football career so far, but for outgoing captain, Harry Kane, it comes as something of a snub, and there is already talk of a rift between the two.

Kane spluttered:

"There is a rift between the two."

Maguire, meanwhile, disagreed with this, saying:

"No, there's nothing in it at all. In fact, me and Harry have quite a lot in common - our names, for example."

England are expected to score five goals again, but may have to endure some unsavoury chanting.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
