Harry Maguire.

Three Manchester United players have won UEFA Star of the Match awards at Euro 2020, with no other club being able to better that figure.

Recognition for Harry Maguire’s excellent performance against Germany for England earned him the trophy on Tuesday, following in the footsteps of team-mates Victor Lindelof and Paul Pogba.

During the group stages, Lindelof was the star man in Sweden’s 0-0 draw with Spain, a day before Pogba collected the prize for his accomplished display as France beat Germany 1-0.

Victor Lindelof helped shut out Spain during the group stages.

Hopefully, our other players remaining alongside Maguire in the tournament – Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford and David De Gea – may also get a chance to get one of the UEFA Star Man accolades.

Some individuals have won the trophies a couple of times – Sergio Busquets, Romelu Lukaku, Leonardo Spinazzola and Denzel Dumfries – but in terms of different victors per club, United are now joint-top.

Some players are in the process of moving clubs, which complicates things slightly, but the fact David Alaba does not join Real Madrid officially until 1 July means we are still classifying the Austrian as being at Bayern Munich.

That means the Spanish giants are joined by United, Manchester City and Internazionale in having three different individuals win the official UEFA prizes.

Lukaku’s double success means Inter can argue they have had four triumphs in this field.

Paul Pogba had a fine tournament on a personal level and was superb against Germany.
