The Three Lions went onto lose the UEFA Nations League clash 1-0 with former Tottenham man Christian Eriksen scoring for the visitors on Wednesday.

And speaking after the game, Keane believes Southgate should have consoled Maguire as he walked back to the dressing room.

"I think sometimes he [Gareth] knows Harry has had a tough time on and off the pitch, a pat on the back would have helped him," he said.

"That would have settled him from Gareth."

The former Manchester United captain added: "The only down side is for Maguire, he's going back to a team not full of confidence.

Maguire has had a difficult few months on and off the pitch, but Southgate doesn't think he needs a break from football.

"Knowing Harry as I do, he'll want to play football," he said after his side's defeat.

"The best place for him to be is on the pitch. We know he's happy for everybody to have an opinion on what he should be doing. That's life as a top player. If nobody's interested in you life's very straightforward.

"If you're captain of United and a top player for England everybody has an opinion. You have to ride with that. He's strong enough to deal with it. He's got to show the resilience I know he has to come through that.

"He is having a period where he is getting a lot of sticks thrown his way but he is big enough to deal with that he will come through it, he will be stronger for it.

"He's got our support and I'm sure his club will do the same. He is getting all sorts at the moment, from people who should know better. None of us like to be in the centre of that storm."
