Maguire was named in England’s 26-man squad for Qatar despite losing his place in the United team under new manager Erik ten Hag.

The 29-year-old, often backed by Gareth Southgate, could well start Monday’s opening game against Iran in a back three.

But former Premier League defender Gallas has slammed Maguire’s inclusion and says former Chelsea defender and AC Milan star Fikayo Tomori should have been on the plane instead.

‘Manchester United have given so many chances, but he doesn’t have the quality,’ Gallas told Genting Casino.

‘Everybody is laughing at him when he plays, why has Gareth Southgate picked him? If he is in the England squad, then he has to have earned the right by playing well for his club.

‘Players deserve to be judged on their performances, and Maguire’s – when he has played – have been poor. If he isn’t playing well, why is he being called up for a big competition like the World Cup?

‘For me, this is a favour from the manager and that isn’t fair on the other players like Fikayo Tomori. Maybe I’m being too harsh, but I’m sure many people are thinking the same thing – it isn’t fair.
