Rare Footage Of A 20-Year-Old Harry Maguire Smashing The Two-Footed Corner Challenge Has Emerged

Harry Maguire took part in Sky Sports' two-footed corner challenge when he was 20-years-old and absolutely bossed it.


Back in 2013, Sky cameras travelled to Sheffield United to put three players to the test and one of them was a very young Maguire.

Future Manchester United captain Maguire would take turns taking corners with teammates Neill Collins and Tony McMahon.

The rules outlined that each player must score direct from a corner with first their left foot and then their right foot, with the ball not allowed to bounce before crossing the goal line.

For those who have played football you'll know how difficult this, especially with your weaker foot.

McMahon stepped up first and managed to score with his left foot after three tries.

Next is Maguire and he was as cool as you like, whipping one into the far bottom corner on his first try.

Even his teammates were stunned and Collins couldn't contend, taking five tries to score with his left.

You'd imagine everyone would fare better on their stronger right side for the next round. Well, they didn't.

McMahon took 14 tries to get one in and Collins a staggering 20.

What about Maguire? He managed to stay in single digits and nailed it in a respectable three attempts.

The final scorecards then read Maguire 4, Collins 25 and McMahon 18.

Maguire looks incredibly pleased with himself at the end as his teammates look towards him with envy.

Fans have reacted to the footage and they're impressed with Maguire's technique.

One commented: "I would die of starvation on that training ground trying to score direct from a corner with my left foot."

Another said: "We laugh at defenders but most are more skilful than we could ever dream of being."

A third put: "I'm a Sheffield United fan and this is amazing what a player he is now our academy raised this beast up."

While someone explained: "Well we can see why he's a Premier League footballer."

Maybe United could've done with his corners during their run of 139 in a row without scoring.

It's been a tricky season for Maguire and the Red Devils look likely to miss out on Champions League football.

The England international has been criticised for his performances this campaign, after impressing at Euro 2020.

United return to action after the international break against Leicester City.
