The 25-year-old has seen his stock rise dramatically since the tournament, and found himself heavily linked with a move to Man United during the transfer window.

All eyes have been on Maguire since the season began, with everyone waiting for the moment that he buries his first header of the campaign.

It took him just three games to get on the score sheet, however it was the least Maguire-isque goal you will ever see.
