England manager Gareth Southgate has withdrawn Manchester United Captain from the squad after being given a suspended prison sentence on the Greek island of Syros.
Defender Maguire, 27, was named in Southgate’s latest squad earlier on Tuesday, while his trial was ongoing.
He was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery.
Southgate said withdrawing Maguire was “in the best interests of all parties”. He said: “As I said earlier today, I reserved the right to review the situation.
“Having spoken to Manchester United and the player, I have made this decision in the best interests of all parties and with consideration of the impact on our preparations for next week.”
