Maguire spoke following the game and praised the fans in attendance for their passion.

He said per Daily Mail: "That felt like a proper football match, the first time I have felt it in a long time. That was the atmosphere we were missing and the atmosphere football deserves.

"It is magnificent to get the fans back in the stadium, of course to put a smile on their faces after a tough couple of years for everyone in the country.

"We knew the pressure of coming out at Wembley against Germany. We knew we had to win the game, we did it with a great performance, a controlled performance and a magnificent victory and a big celebration in the end.

"It is a magnificent night for everyone involved who follows this country, we put a smile on a lot of people's faces, that's what we do, that's why we play football.

"But come Saturday we know it is business again and we can take the momentum and confidence from the deserved victory we have managed to get."
