England legend Ashley Cole has suggested that Wolves defender Conor Coady could replace Harry Maguire as an England first-team regular in the coming months.

Coady has enjoyed arguably the best week of his professional career this week, scoring his first England goal and captaining his country in the 3-0 win over Wales.

The Liverpudlian was an unused sub in the win over Belgium on Sunday, but with Maguire’s form under scrutiny, Cole has tipped the Wolves captain to be one of the ones pushing for his starting berth.

If Gareth Southgate is to continue with his back three formation, Coady’s experience of the system could be invaluable to the England manager, having played in the same formation for over two years.

Coady will be hoping to reclaim a starting position when England take on Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night.
