Manchester United player, Harry Maguire has said there are no cliques in the England squad despite the fight that occurred between Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez this week .
Both players had clashed on the day Manchester City got beat 3-1 by Gomez and Liverpool, and they took that beef to national team training.
However, Maguire is sure there is no divide in the English national team.
His words, “No, everybody mixes.
“I think you’ve seen how good the unity in the squad is over the last couple of years. It’s been a good two years and the group has grown together. We continue to keep on growing and that’s really important.
“No, definitely no cliques. We all share tables and share jokes and laughs together.”
On the team’s chances ahead of Euro 2020 qualification, “It would be really special to play in a major tournament and walking out at Wembley would be something that you dream of,”
“People say it would give us a little advantage as well.
“We know that the crowd get right behind us at Wembley and the support over the last few years – especially since I’ve been playing – has been unbelievable.
“It’s a big game [against Montenegro] and one that we’re all looking forward to and we feel prepared for.”
“Obviously, we’re coming off the back of a clean sheet [in a 6-0 win in Bulgaria], but we’ve conceded a few sloppy goals recently,” Maguire said. “I’m not proud of it and we’re working hard on the training pitch to make that better.
“We know the firepower we have in our squad. We’ve got to a stage now where we’re scoring near enough in every game, and we’re creating problems for other people’s defences.
“So my job and I’m sure all the rest of the defenders and the keepers as a group, we’ll try to shut the shop up and start keeping clean sheets a lot more regularly.”
